Around 63 flu shot clinics will be set up starting next week across 44 communities in the Westman region.

The first clinic is October 18th with the final one scheduled for November 18th.

Deb Clevett, Vice President of Community Health Services for the Assiniboine RHA says there is a change this year to how the clinics will run.

Clevett adds flu shots are available to all Manitobans free of charge this year.

She encourages those interested in recieving the shot to call their clinic ahead of time and book an appointment.
