Health Minister Jim Reiter rolled up his sleeve and got his flu shot on Tuesday morning in Regina.
The minister had his vaccine administered at a pharmacy. This is the second year the shots are being provided at pharmacies in Saskatchewan.
Last year, more than 56,000 Saskatchewan residents had their flu shots done at pharmacies.
Reiter is encouraging people to get vaccinated sooner than later this flu season.
“If there is an influenza outbreak you can see extreme wait times in emergency departments and hospitals,” said Reiter.
There are more than 1000 pharmacists at 286 pharmacies throughout Saskatchewan signed up to provide flu shots this year.
