Oct. 30: Government Encourages Residents to Get Flu Shots
The annual campaign to vaccinate Nunavummiut against influenza began. The vaccine is free and is available at health centres throughout Nunavut and in Iqaluit at public health. The influenza season runs from January to May in Nunavut. People are encouraged to get their vaccinations before Christmas so they’ll be protected when influenza arrives in the territory.
