flu shots still available

It’s never too late to get your flu shot!

In Manitoba, the flu season typically lasts until Spring and it takes your body 2 weeks after receiving the vaccine to be fully covered.

Free flu shots for you and your family are now available (including children under 7 years old).

Receive your flu shot and discuss how to keep you and your family healthy this winter with the nurse practitioner or pharmacist.

No appointment necessary.

Assessing risk of Type 2 Diabetes with body measure

Stepping on a traditional scale or calculating your BMI may not be giving you the whole picture. As part of our continuing Diabetes Education series, we have partnered with our friends at Body Measure to talk about how to assess your risk of Type-2 Diabetes using body composition measurements. These provide accurate and precise measurements of total body composition, including bone mineral content, lean muscle mass, fat tissue mass, and body fat percentage.

Join Melina and Erica on Tuesday, March 26th from 7:30-8:30 pm
