FREDERICTON (CNB) - A number of H1N1 immunization clinics have been postponed due to inclement weather conditions.

New Brunswickers are encouraged to check for updated clinic information prior to leaving for a clinic. This information is available at www.gnb.ca/flu, or by calling 1-800-580-0038.

All New Brunswickers who have yet to receive the vaccine are encouraged to get vaccinated within the next two weeks, since the last of the large public clinics will be held the week ending Friday, Dec. 18.

Print media are asked not to print clinic lists, since clinic information is subject to change. Local radio stations are strongly encouraged to provide clinic listings for their listeners directly from www.gnb.ca/flu.
