Influenza

Congratulations, we reached an overall Influenza immunization rate of 79 per cent for the 2017/18 season. Thank you to everyone who rolled up their sleeves last fall/winter and got immunized. Let’s all commit to getting our Influenza immunization this fall so we do an even better job of protecting those in our care.

See the memo from Patrick Dumelie celebrating this milestone. Site immunization rates are available here.
