The residents, staff and volunteers at St. Pat’s Home are encouraged to get the flu vaccine yearly. The flu shot is the best defense against getting the flu! We highly recommend that families of our residents and any visitors to St. Pat’s also get their flu shots. Please help us protect our residents, as well as your own family and friends. Please see these guidelines for other ways you can support keeping our residents healthy: http://stpats.ca/news/outbreak-status/
Getting the flu shot is easier than ever! The publicly funded flu vaccine is available from your primary care provider, family doctor or your local pharmacist. Ottawa Public Health also offers several Flu Shot Clinics; visit http://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/flu-clinics.aspx for dates, times and locations.
