ALL APARTMENT RESIDENTS (PG, PAV, TE, TW): Flu Shot Clinic next week

Dear Residents,

Apex Pharmacy will be on site to give residents their flu shot on the following days:

  • Terrace East – Monday November 15th
  • Terrace West – Tuesday, November 16th
  • Primrose Gardens – Wednesday, November 17th
  • Pavilion – Date to be determined

According to HealthLink BC, adults aged 65 years and older are at increased risk for the flu. Getting the flu shot is the single best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu. All residents are encouraged to get the flu shot. If you have any questions, or if you have special health concerns, please ask your doctor if the flu shot is right for you. If you do not want to get a flu shot, just let staff know when they come to your door.

Here’s what you need to do to get your flu shot:

  • Wear a short-sleeved shirt.
  • Bring your ID with you.
  • Wait in your apartment. Staff will come and get you when it’s time to come down to the dining room to get your shot.
  • We will start at 9:00am and expect the clinic to run throughout the day.
  • When you get to the clinic we’ll have a consent form ready for you to sign.

Lunch will be served to all residents in their apartments on the day of the clinic. Thank you for being patient with us as we get these vaccinations done!
