The early winter flu shot clinics have been pretty busy in our area and more are on the way.
Public Health Nurse Denise Talarico in Castlegar says this year’s jab appears to be a better match than last year’s.
Last winter the vaccine had a success rate of between 30% and 50%.
You can visit Interior Health to find a flu clinic near you and over 700 people showed up for one in Castlegar Wednesday.
A mist inter-nasal vaccine is also available for children.
