Flu Shot Clinic -YES!

We have managed to have the Flu Shot Clinic come to Thetis again this year, despite VIHA phasing out clinics and leaving people to seek out flu shots individually from pharmacies.

The Thetis Island Flu Shot Clinic will be held on October 31st, Wednesday, at the community centre, starting at 11:15.  The clinic will be running concurrently with Soups-On which starts at 11:30, so you have the opportunity to have a great $5 lunch, visit with neighbours, and get your free flu shot all on the same day.  The flu shot clinic ends at 12:50 pm. In order that the VIHA nurses can get back to the ferry.

They will bring the “flu mist” for children (rather than a shot) if you let know ahead if your kids require that.

Please support this Flu Shot Clinic on the 31st. We feel there is a need for it in our community instead of having to inconveniently travel elsewhere.  And who can say no to a great bowl of soup!

Frustrating But Important  

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy Venting Index is the result of data collected on weather, pressure, winds etc.  On Poor or ‘NO” days in our Southern Vancouver Island zone you cannot light your burn pile.  The smoke generated would not dissipate effectively and will cause increased airshed pollution and health risks.

Thetis Island “enjoys” about eight months of the year of open burning, five of them with no permit required. Elsewhere in the Cowichan Valley area there is either no open burning whatsoever, or is restricted to a few weeks in winter. And the Venting Index during those few weeks may restrict the burning opportunities to only a few days.

In order for us to keep open burning in all but the four wildfire danger months here, we have to play by the rules.  Vancouver Island residents are just as able as we are to check the Venting Index and call if they see smoke on Thetis Island on a NO Day. 

Check the Venting Index daily; it’s updated every morning at 07:30 a.m.  Find it on the Thetis Island Fire website or phone the number we have posted at the ferry or the solid waste facility.  Use it or we lose it!
