Give by Taking – Vancouver Flu Clinics Support Meals on Wheels
VANCOUVER, BC CANADA – The Health and Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) is holding two drop-in flu clinics, Thursday, October 20 and Thursday, November 17, at their South Granville office, running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. All revenue generated from the clinics supports Western and Chinese Meals on Wheels programs in Vancouver and Richmond.
Individuals will have a choice of two vaccines at the clinic: Vaccigrip, the regular, seasonal flu shot, or a micro-needle flu vaccine, called Intanza - ideal for those individuals with a phobia of needles, or those individuals such as avid athletes who do not want an intramuscular injection.
It is recommended that every person is vaccinated annually, as protection from the previous year will diminish over time.
Not only are Care BC prices cheaper than your local pharmacy, but you’re also supporting charitable efforts in your community.
Date: Thursday, October 20 and Thursday, November 17, 2011
Time: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Location: 204 – 3077 Granville St. Vancouver, B.C.
Cost: $20 for regular seasonal flu vaccine, $25 for Intanza vaccination
All costs payable by cash, Visa and MasterCard.
