Immunization and Communicable Diseases
The best way to protect yourself and others from tetanus and other communicable diseases is to get vaccinated. That is why the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) would like to remind you about the importance of receiving and keeping up to date your immunizations.
Every year, you should also receive your flu shot to protect not only yourself, but also those around you. Multiple flu clinics are held throughout the Eastern Counties every fall. Visit www.eohu.ca during flu season for information on the immunization clinics nearest you.
You can receive these vaccines through the EOHU, or your healthcare provider. Remember to call the EOHU at 613-933-1375 or 1-800-267-7120 every time you receive a vaccine in order to update your immunization record.
