Seasonal Flu Shots

It’s that time again, Moms. The time to open the giant can of worms known as The Annual Flu Shot Debate. Whether you are strictly Team Pro or firmly Team Anti or somewhere on the fence, head on over to the Forum to discuss and learn.

For those of you who have slid off the fence and want to have your children or yourselves vaccinated, here is the rundown of where you can get your shot in London. Please note that children ages 6 months to 5 years must go to either the Middlesex London Health Unit or a health care provider’s office¬†for the flu vaccine. Pharmacists can only give flu shots to people over 5 years old.

MIDDLESEX LONDON HEALTH UNIT

The MLHU will have a number of clinics from now until March 2015 providing free flu shots to anyone over the age of 6 months. Please bring your driver’s license or Ontario Health Card.

Whether you get the shot or not, here are some great tips to reduce your risk of getting the flu this winter:

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Take care of yourself: eat well, exercise, and get a good amount of sleep.
  3. Stay home if you feel sick.
  4. Cover your cough.
  5. Clean! Phones, doorknobs and handles, light switches, keyboards, counter tops, sinks, taps, and anything else that people touch frequently.
