The Perth District Health Unit began administering free flu shots this week in Stratford, hosting clinics at the Rotary Complex Monday and Wednesday.
The vaccination boosts your immune system and is the number one way people over the age of six months can protect themselves against the influenza virus, says the agency.
Additional clinics will be held in Stratford throughout November. For dates, times and locations visit www.pdhu.on.ca.
The flu shot is also available through family doctors, health teams, at select pharmacies, and through some workplaces.
