Vaccinations are responsible for preventing many infectious diseases. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), immunization prevents more than two million deaths per year around the world.
The Public Health Agency of Canada had developed an immunization schedule for the entire population. The schedule lists the vaccines the government considers essential to protect people against possible disease outbreaks, and are provided free of charge. It also indicates which vaccines are to be administered at what age. Other vaccinations may also be recommended for a particular health problem, for work or lifestyle reasons, for travel, or to protect you against the flu virus.
Vaccination services are available in your local Winchester Pharmasave and are provided by pharmacists who have received the required theoretical and practical training. Having your pharmacist administer your vaccine, such as a flu shot, is convenient and often no appointment is required. In many circumstances, there is no additional cost for this service as the provincial health plan covers the cost.
Remember: Vaccinations not only protects you but also indirectly protects everyone around you.
