DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH FLU SHOT UPDATE
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Department of Health has received questions regarding the flu season and availability of a flu vaccination (flu shot). The Community Health Program administers the flu vaccine schedules and anticipates an update soon from the Eastern Ontario Health Unit as to the expected distribution dates of the flu vaccine.
The vaccinations are typically available in mid-late fall.
Community Health will announce any updates as they receive them. In the meantime, staff are making preparations for the processes that will be followed this year for flu vaccinations and clinics.
We thank you for your patience and understanding and assure you that with the flu season right around the corner, and the risk of COVID-19 increasing concerns, we are making every effort to ensure the community has access to the flu vaccine as soon as possible.
If you require additional information, please contact the Community Health Program at 613-575-2341 ext. 3220.
