The 2020-2021 Alberta Influenza Immunization program is now available

As we continue to work together on Alberta’s response to COVID-19, immunization is more important than ever, both to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and also to reduce the burden of additional illness in our communities.  As you may already be hearing, this year’s immunization options have changed.

All Albertans, six months of age and older, are still eligible to be immunized, free of charge; however, this year, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is working with pharmacists and physicians to offer immunization to different age groups and demographics.  The easiest way for most Albertans to get immunized is to call a local pharmacy or doctor’s office. 

AHS clinics are offering influenza immunization to those under five years of age and their immediate families or household members, only. Appointments are required for AHS clinics, and can easily be booked online at https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/influenza/influenza.aspx , or by calling 811. 

Individuals who do not have a provincial health care number, or who live in a community where there are no other immunizing health care providers aside from AHS, can call 811 to book an immunization through AHS.

No community will be without the protection of influenza immunization.  Alberta Health Services is here to support you, your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours in getting immunized.

Masking and physical distancing practices continue to be in place at all immunization locations. We remind all Albertans: please don’t attend an immunization appointment if you are feeling unwell. If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 please isolate at home and visit ahs.ca/covid to complete the AHS online self-assessment and book a test for COVID-19 if recommended.

Bringing Good Breast Health to You – Upcoming Screen Test in Valleyview November 12-17, 2020

BRINGING GOOD BREAST HEALTH TO YOU
Screen Test in Valleyview November 12-17, 2020

The AHS Screen Test Mobile Mammography Clinic will be returning to Valleyview November 12-17, 2020. Screen Test brings breast cancer screening to women across Alberta with its state-of-the-art mobile mammography unit.

Due to COVID-19, the Screen Test mobile mammography service was suspended from mid-March to mid-June. We have resumed service but are now several months behind on our usual rotation. Screen Test is taking a number of precautions to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. Details will be shared when clients call to book an appointment.

We are asking for your help to raise awareness about the clinic and the importance of breast cancer screening. Here are some ideas about raising awareness:
– Share the attached e-poster on Facebook and online community groups, forward to your colleagues, friends and women who may be eligible (age 40+). A PDF and JPG are included for your convenience. To order other resources please email screen.test@ahs.ca.
– Visit the newly designed screeningforlife.ca website for breast health and Screen Test information, including:
o Have questions? Get some answers with our FAQs
o Learn about your personal risk of breast cancer and what you can do about it here
– Tweet about it – share this tweet “Hey ladies – do you need a mammogram? The Screen Test mobile mammogram clinic will be in Valleyview November 12-17, 2020. Call 1-800-667-0604 (toll-free) to book today!”

Here’s some info about the clinic:
What: AHS Screen Test Mobile Mammography Clinic
How to book: Call 1-800-667-0604 (toll-free)
Cost: None

Who should be screened?
• Women 50 – 74: this group is most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, and should plan to have a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer.
• Women 40 – 49: screening is optional and they should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for their first mammogram in Alberta, which are available online here.
• Women 75 and over can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider.
• Screening mammograms are not recommended for women under age 40. Women in this age group should discuss their breast cancer risk and mammography options with their health care provider.

Why are mammograms important? Screening mammograms are routine tests used to find early signs of cancer in women who have no breast problems or symptoms. They can find changes in the breast that are too small to be felt by a woman or her doctor. Early detection with mammograms is one of the reasons that most women (90%) are now surviving breast cancer. To learn more about Screen Test, visit our website or call us at 1-800-667-0604.
