Protect Employees from the Flu and Support a Good Cause - Flu Clinics Help Sustain Meals on Wheels, Vancouver and Richmond
VANCOUVER, BC CANADA – The Health and Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) is booking workplace flu immunization clinics throughout British Columbia for the 2011 flu season. All revenue generated from the clinics directly supports the Western and Chinese Meals on Wheels programs in Vancouver and Richmond.
Now in their 15th year of providing flu immunization, Care BC is known as the reliable and trusted source for flu shots throughout the province, rigorously following all Canadian health and safety standards and with many customers returning year after year. Highly skilled and dedicated Registered Nurses will answer each person’s questions and ensure the safe disposal of all hazardous waste.
Again this season, Care BC will be offering the Tetanus/Diphtheria vaccine at the same time as your flu clinic, as well as a micro needle flu vaccination option called Intanza – ideal for the needle-shy or for avid athletes.
Last year, Care BC nurses successfully administered over 12,000 doses of flu vaccine.
