The Contactivity Centre schedule has been announced for Fall 2022. Contactivity is the wonderful Westmount group which oversees activities, services and offers friendly advice for seniors when asked. (Their work during the Pandemic has been incredibly helpful).

Vaccine boosters and Flu shots
It is very important to keep up with your Covid-19 vaccine booster schedule as there is still plenty of Covid floating around. 4th booster shots are now being given at Decarie Square. You can get your Flu Shot at the same time as your 4th or 5th shot if you wish. Visit the Quebec government’s appointment page to make your appointment. The address is https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/advice-and-prevention/vaccination/covid-19-vaccine
You can also walk in at Decarie Square (without an appointment) but there may be a wait.
Flu shots will also be available at our local pharmacies, as they are every year. Call your pharmacy for information.
Be sure to follow precautions – wash your hands, wear your masks and social distance when with others!
