Influenza is serious. Prevention is your protection.
*Clean your hands
*Cover your cough
*Stay home when sick
*Stay fit and healthy
Immunization clinics are available in Medicine Hat as of October 24th! Vaccines will be offered, free of charge, to all Albertans six months of age and older.
Vaccines make your immune system stronger by building antibodies, which help prevent diseases. Immunization is very safe. It’s much safer to get immunized than to get this disease.

Kids and young adults are especially vulnerable to substances since their brains are still developing. It is not always easy, but talking to your kids about fentanyl and other dangerous drugs is one of the best things you can do to keep them safe.
