Jean Bartkowiak, President and CEO of our Hospital and CEO of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute is a Flu Fighter because he received his flu shot.
Influenza, commonly known as “the flu”, is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus. It’s contagious and spreads rapidly from person to person. Fortunately, the influenza vaccine is safe and effective and can benefit people of all ages. Be a Flu Fighter like Jean and help keep yourself, your family, your friends and others safe.
Even if you’re healthy, getting immunized against influenza is a great way to protect those around you where you live, work and play. For more information, ask your local health care provider or visit www.thunderbayflu.ca
