Immunizations are the best way to protect yourself, your family, and those around you from influenza. The Heartland Health Region began its seasonal influenza immunization campaign with the first clinics of the season starting on October 23rd. Vaccine is once again available to all Saskatchewan residents at no cost. This year, the public influenza vaccination program will be providing only the injectable vaccine. There will be no free nasal mist. Recommendations from both the Canadian and American immunization advisory committees, based on recent studies, are that the injectable vaccine is more effective. The injectable vaccine available this year has four strains in it, two against the A strain influenzas and two against the B strain influenzas.
