Toronto Public Health is hosting a media event tomorrow to launch the City of Toronto's fall flu vaccine clinics and remind residents that getting a flu shot is the best way to protect themselves from influenza.

Date: Friday, October 27
Time: 12:30 p.m.
Location: Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St.

Photo and interview opportunities will be available with Toronto's Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Eileen de Villa, who will be on hand to talk about:
