Oct. 13: Flu Vaccine Clinics to Open
The government reminded residents that vaccination against influenza offers the best protection from the flu. Influenza season typically begins in Prince Edward Island in December. Beginning Oct. 5, Islanders can call 1-855-354-4358 (4FLU) to make an appointment at a Health PEI Influenza Immunization Clinic, which will start on Oct. 13. Islanders can also contact local pharmacists, family physicians or nurse practitioners to get their flu shot.
