Maple Ridge Mayor Ernie Daykin gets ready for a flu shot at the Salvation Army Caring Place on Wednesday. Between 400 to 600 Fraser Health residents, mainly seniors, die each year from influenza related complications. Last year, more than 285,000 flu shots were provided, free, to those most at risk of complications from an infection. The campaign for this year’s flu vaccine has already begun. You can receive your flu shot from a family doctor, local public health unit, a walk-in clinic or pharmacist. To find out if you are eligible for a free vaccine and for a list of flu clinics nearest you, go to www.fraserhealth.ca or call HealthLink B.C. at 811, or visit www.HealthLinkBC.ca. For more information on other vaccinations in B.C., go to ImmunizeBC.ca.
