  • Due to the pandemic and making flu shot clinics safe, masks are mandatory.
  • Do not come to the clinic if you have a fever or are feeling ill. 
  • Please note that for the purposes of COVID-19 contact tracing, anyone that comes with the person receiving the flu shot as a support person, or spouse for example,  will also have to provide their name and telephone number.
  • Contact your local pharmacy for information on how they are providing flu shots or look at myflushot.ca which has a listing of most of Northumberland County’s pharmacies and information about what kind of vaccine they have in stock.
