Preparing for Influenza Season

Flu season is upon us again, and this year will be the first time both influenza and COVID-19 are circulating in our communities with no public health restrictions. That’s the topic of the newest AHS Vlog.

It’s very important we all continue to take the required precautions to reduce the spread of influenza. By keeping the number of influenza cases and outbreaks low, we can help protect our patients, as well as the more vulnerable populations such as seniors and young children.

Immunization is the most effective way to reduce symptoms if you do get sick, and to limit the spread of the virus to those around you. We encourage you all to act and get the flu shot this year.

Joining the AHS Vlog to tell us more about this year’s campaign are:

  • Danielle Neave, Director of Workplace Health & Safety Business Partnerships for the North Zone.
  • Dr. Robyn Harrison, Provincial Communicable Disease Consultant, Workplace Health & Safety.
  • Dr. Kristin Klein, Medical Officer of Health for Provincial Population & Public Health.
