Oct 24 2016, 9:26 pm

Flu season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer.

Alberta Health Services has started offering free flu shots as of Monday, October 24 to all Albertans who are six months of age or older.

There are four Calgary clinics offering the flu shot:

  • Brentwood Village Mall – 3630 Brentwood Mall NW
  • Northgate – A154 – 495 36 Street NE
  • Richmond Road Diagnostic Treatment Centre – 302 1820 Richmond Road SW
  • South Calgary Health Centre – 31 Sunpark Plaza SE

Certain pharmacies and physicians will also offer the vaccination, but children under the age of nine must be vaccinated by an Alberta Health Services clinic.

Last year, 62 Albertans died from influenza – that number is zero so far this year, and with more people getting immunized, it might stay that way.
