Mark your calendar: Get a free flu shot!

Your flu shot protects me, my flu shot protects you.

YKHC urges all residents of the YK Delta to receive their flu shot in the 2020/2021 season. COVID-19 and the seasonal flu have very similar symptoms. Simultaneous COVID-19 and flu outbreaks in our communities this winter could easily overwhelm local medical capacity. You can help to prevent this from happening, while protecting the health of yourself and others, by receiving your flu vaccine.

On Saturday, October 24, YKHC will be providing the flu vaccine at mass dispensing events across the region. On this day, at the times noted below, the flu vaccine will be available without appointment as part of an outdoor drive-thru event. Vehicle and pedestrian queuing will be managed on-site to meet the unique needs of each event.

CHSB parking lot (the same location as the COVID-19 drive-thru testing site)
