For those unimpressed by those protection numbers, Dr. Allison says it is very important, that we reflect on effectiveness, and how we interpret it.

That said, we note the next Fort St. John Public Health Vaccination Clinic is scheduled for December first at the city health unit office at 101-15, 110th avenue from 10 am to 4 pm.

It will be another drop-in clinic and open during the lunch hour and that is also true of the next clinic at the 100th st. Senior’s Hall Clinic, on November 17th from 11 AM to 6.30 PM.

Meantime, the public is also reminded that flu shots are available at local pharmacies, or through select physicians or health care professionals.
