BOIL WATER ADVISORY:
The town of Moosonee has issued a Boil Water Advisory (BWA). The advisory affects specific residents of Moosonee. For more information, see Town of Moosonee - Emergency Updates. Residents affected are required to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to use or use bottled water. See our Boil Water Advisory page for tips on using water safely during a BWA.
There is currently a shortage of the yellow fever vaccine in Canada.
Travellers should contact the Porcupine Health Unit well in advance to inquire about whether or not Yellow Fever vaccine is required. The Porcupine Health Unit will then be able to advise you on your options including possibly travelling out of town to receive the Yellow Fever vaccine.
The Porcupine Health Unit, along with a variety of local partners, is once again hosting local Healthy Aging Expos. Each will feature a number of different booths and events. Like last year, we will again be offering the influenza vaccine to adults aged 65 years and older. Visit this page for details and updated schedules.
