Doctors Nova Scotia is seeking two Professional Support Program counsellors
The president of Doctors Nova Scotia is worried people may be getting complacent with public health protocols. This comes after a rise in COVID-19 cases and public exposures over the last few weeks.
Every year, John Jollimore gets his flu shot.
“But this year, with COVID, every bit of prevention is a good thing,” he said before getting his shot at the the Tantallon Community Medical Clinic.
Dr. Katherine Quackenbush, a family physician at the clinic, is taking part in the flu shot clinic and encourages everyone to get the vaccine.
“We have lots of vulnerable people in our population and that’s one way we can help keep them safe,” she said. “It can help lessen severity of influenza and also keep the individual healthy.”
“The neat thing about the four Atlantic provinces is that we are four small provinces, we’re geographically in the same boat, and we experience similar things,” explained Dr. Robyn MacQuarrie. “We are trying to gather information and come up with a plan.”
