Posted on October 26, 2009

HINI Inncoculation Clinic at Masaryk-Cowan Community Centre Beginning November 2, 2009 Toronto Public Health will hold a public H1N1 flu shot clinic at MCCCThe clinics will operate on Tuesdays to Fridays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for approximately six weeks. This is the largest Public Health mobilization ever in Canada. . Immunizing over a million Torontonians is an enormous undertaking requiring the cooperation, support and hard work of hundreds of members of the Toronto Public Service.Parkdale is proud to host this initiative and we will be working closely with staff to ensure that this service runs smoothly. MCCC is home to numerous community activities. Scheduling of these activities may be disrupted by the H1N1 clinics. My office is working closely with Parks and Recreation and other service providers to find alternative locations for programs that may be affected. As I learn more from Public Health and Parks and Recreation, I will inform you through my blog, postings on my website www.gordperks.ca, and via my office staff. Information about the H1N1 flu virus will be available at the clinics, on the web and through 311. Additional information is available at http://www.toronto.ca/health/cdc/h1n1/clinics.htm. Toronto Public Health will also offer vaccinations at selected homeless shelters.

Help stop the spread of H1N1

The best way to stop the spread of H1N1 is to get vaccinated and practise good hygiene.

Do your part to stop the spread of germs: * wash or sanitize your hands frequently * cough or sneeze into a tissue * If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm – not your hands * clean common surfaces* stay home if you are ill.
