Employee Flu Clinics

ARM YOURSELF AGAINST THE FLU

GET IMMUNIZED & GET PROTECTED

Seasonal influenza (the flu) is a serious, infectious and contagious respiratory illness. You can spread the flu 24 hours before showing any symptoms, and five to seven days after symptoms begin.

Because you work in a health care setting, you are at increased risk of getting and spreading the influenza virus - regardless of what your job is.

By getting the flu vaccine, you are helping protect your patients, yourself, your colleagues, your family, and your community.

Sun Country Health Region's Employee Health Nurses are again offering plenty of opportunities for all SCHR employees and physicians to be vaccinated against influenza. Employee/physician immunization clinics are scheduled at SCHR facilities and sites throughout the Region. Please ensure you bring your SCHR idenfication name tag with you when you come to be immunized. Your name tag is necessary in this year's influenza immunization campaign.

*See below attachment for Influenza Immunization Clinics for SCHR employees and physicians. 

All SCHR employees and physicians are encouraged to be immunized as soon as possible - before the influenza virus begins its wide circulation. Flu season typically begins around the end of November, continuing to the end of March.

This year, all Saskatchewan health regions have adopted a policy that will require you to be immunized or wear a mask in all patient and client care areas - once flu season is officially declared by the province's Chief Medical Health Officer (MHO). The MHO makes the declaration based on the circulation and other epidemiology of the annual influenza virus.
