Health board expected to decide today if it will purchase a building to serve as a hospice.

The Saskatoon Health Region is set to hold two drop-in flu immunization clinics for high risk groups on Friday.

The drop-in clinics will be open to pregnant women, and children between six and 59 months of age.

A Saskatoon clinic will be held Friday, between 1-6 p.m. CST, at the Ebenezer Baptist Church at 107 McWillie Avenue.

A rural clinic will be held on Friday, between 9-11:30 a.m. CST, at the Conexus Boardroom at the Humboldt District Health Complex. Pregnant women and children between six and 59 months of age who live in rural communities can book an appointment through their local public health office. 

Postpartum mothers will also be able to receive vaccine before discharge. 

The health region said the flu vaccine is available through booked appointments for people with compromised immune systems.

Up-to-date information about the flu in Saskatoon is available on the health region’s website.
