Prince Albert Parkland teams up with Prince Albert Raiders for influenza vaccine promotion and flu shot clinic.

 

The Prince Albert Raiders Hockey Club is collaborating with the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region to host an influenza vaccine clinic before and during the Raiders game on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at the Art Hauser Centre in Prince Albert.

 

“We are very excited about this opportunity to have the Raiders involved in promoting this important public health effort,” said Wanda Atcheson, Director of Public Health Services. “A crowded hockey arena is where illnesses such as influenza can be easily spread, so it is important for hockey fans and their favourite team to get their flu shots and reduce the risk of getting and spreading influenza.”

 

“The Raiders are proud to partner with the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region to provide this opportunity to our fans and the general public to get their flu shot,” said Bruno Campese, Prince Albert Raiders General Manager.

 

Public Health staff will be providing influenza immunization from 6 to 8:30 p.m. (or about the end of the second intermission) in the boardroom at the Raiders office. The Raiders will be playing the Swift Current Broncos starting at 7 p.m.

 

The Prince Albert Parkland Health Region provides services and programs to about 80,000 people in one city, and 40 towns, villages and rural municipalities, as well as 12 First Nations. It is a major referral centre for health-care services for residents of northern Saskatchewan.
