Toronto EMS paramedics are helping the homeless "Beat the Flu"
  
Paramedics from the Toronto EMS Community Medicine Program will be at Toronto
Council Fire Native Community Centre on Thursday to give flu shots to the
homeless and marginally-housed people who attend programs at the centre.

Date: Thursday, November 27
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Location: Toronto Council Fire Native Cultural Centre,
439 Dundas St. E. (at the SW corner of Dundas and Parliament Streets)

Founded in 1978, Council Fire offers a tremendous variety of services to the
First Nations people of Toronto, and they have become an integral link in the
networking system among Native and non-Native agencies.

The Toronto EMS Community Medicine Program was started in 2000 in response to
the increasing demands on Toronto's emergency health care system. Through
proactive interventions with the City's most vulnerable populations, the
Community Medicine Program works to help keep people healthy.
