The Town of Gravenhurst, in support of the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and in collaboration with Muskoka Paramedics, is encouraging everyone to get their flu shot and will be offering a community influenza vaccination clinic in Gravenhurst.

Muskoka Paramedic Services are offering a walk-in flu vaccination clinic in Gravenhurst on December 3rd from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  The town says all visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entering the main entrance of the Centennial Centre. Face coverings will be mandatory, and hand hygiene stations will be available.

The health unit says this year especially, is an important year to get a flu shot. The flu shot has been shown to reduce the number of doctor visits, hospitalizations and deaths related to influenza. It can also alleviate some of the pressures faced by the medical community who are dealing with the constraints of COVID-19.
