Your local pharmacist can give flu vaccine shot

To the editor:

In response to your article Flu Shot Clinic Opening Draws A Crowd”, Oct. 25 Capital News.

With flu season now upon us, more than 1,400 pharmacists in B.C. are trained and authorized to give flu shots. We encourage anyone wanting to be vaccinated to talk to their local pharmacist.

Alongside other health professionals, community pharmacists are also offering free flu shots for all eligible patients. At the BC Pharmacy Association, we know that pharmacies are convenient options for people wanting to get vaccinated. We encourage your readers to check their eligibility for a free flu shot by visiting: http://immunizebc.ca/diseases-vaccinations/influenza.

Community pharmacists are a quick and easy option. Speak with your pharmacist today about getting vaccinated this flu season.
