Capital Health and the IWK Health Centre announced yesterday they’re changing the hours for the Flu Assessment Clinics in both Halifax and Dartmouth.


Citing the need to use limited resources for when the centre is busiest, starting today the clinics will be open from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., instead of 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.


The assessment clinic in Halifax is located inside the Maritime Hall at the Halifax Forum. The Dartmouth clinic is at 202 Brownlow Ave., Unit C-CR, in the Burnside Industrial Park.


Since opening the two assessment centres in late October, Capital Health says 4,700 adults and children have been assessed.
