Influenza vaccines are no longer available in Central Alberta, according to Alberta Health Services.

This year’s vaccination campaign was one of the most successful in the province’s history, with more Albertans vaccinated than nearly any other year, said a public service announcement.

As of 4 p.m. Saturday, all influenza immunization clinics were closed in the Central Zone and won’t be reopened this season.

Some doses of vaccine have been reserved for children who have received first doses of influenza vaccine this season, and require a second doze. Children under the age of nine who received seasonal influenza vaccine for the first time this season require two doses to be fully protected.
