The flu may appear to be a minor setback or a nuisance at most. But for older adults aged 65 and above, it can be a life-threatening disease with the potential to wreak havoc on their independence.
The high-dose flu vaccine is covered for all Manitoba older adults aged 65 years and older. Be sure to discuss this with your healthcare provider.
