Always Read the Labels

Never assume a food is free of nuts or peanuts as an ingredient. Do not buy foods without a complete ingredient list. Read ingredient labels every time you shop as companies change their products often!

Reminder to Parents:

Children under nine years of age who have had one dose this year but who have never had influenza vaccine in a previous year, require a second dose four weeks after the first dose.

In total, as of February 10, SCHR Public Health Nurses have vaccinated over 14,000 people at our clinics since they started on October 21, 2013. Over 3,800 influenza vaccinations have been provided by Public Health Nurses since January 1, 2014. As a result, over 37 per cent of children under nine years of age have been protected against influenza and 51 per cent of adults aged 65 years and older have been protected.

Dr. Shauna Hudson, Medical Health Officer for Sun Country Health Region, reminds the public that in addition to vaccination, people can help protect themselves against influenza through frequent handwashing, coughing and sneezing into their sleeve, cleaning surfaces often and staying at home when sick. 

For up-to-date information on influenza and influenza vaccines check out this Saskatchewan Health web page - http://www.health.gov.sk.ca/influenza-flu.

Please call HealthLine at 811 if you have questions about influenza. People who experience respiratory problems should see a doctor.
