WHAT’S UP WITH IMMUNIZATIONS??

 

With the start of school means there is a greater chance that illnesses will be passed on between children. Childhood immunizations are the best way to prevent some of the most serious diseases. The vaccines allow the body to build up a defense against some disease germs when they enter the body.

The Public Health Nurses and Health Centre staff will be calling or dropping off notices to parents and caregivers to let them know when their children are due for their immunizations. Please come into the Health Centre and get your children immunized. This is their best defense against some nasty diseases.

 

Immunization clinics are held at the health centre. If you can come in another day please call ahead and make sure a nurse is available. Call anytime if you have any questions or concerns. (403) 989- 3900.
