Island Health’s annual flu clinics are underway.

Medical Health Officers say they haven’t seen much flu activity yet, but that’s no reason to wait to get a shot.

Last flu season Island Health provided more than 215-thousand people vaccinations.

The health authority’s Val Wilson says the clinics are aimed at vaccinating as many people who are eligible for a free shot as possible.
