Chamber of Commerce, Physician Unhappy With Loss of Travel Vaccination Service Here
The Provost and District Chamber of Commerce has written a letter to East Central Health in Camrose expressing its displeasure at the loss of a service in town where vaccinations that had been available for people travelling are no longer available.

The change to stop the inoculation shots in Provost took place on July 1, 2007.

Also unhappy about this development is Dr. Deon Erasmus who was contacted by The Provost News over the loss of the service to larger centres in east central Alberta.

Residents in the Provost area who are seeking inoculations for travel purposes are being told that they now have to go to Camrose, Wainwright or Vegreville (see PN Sept. 26) instead of getting them in town at the Provost Community Health Services as has been the case for years.

Erasmus was asked in an interview if this change of service matters to the health of residents in the community and he replied “Yes, definitely.”

He says that people will now have to travel at least two hours which will create a “lot of problems for them—and a lot of them will not do it.”

If some think the service is not worthwhile, then why offer it at all (anywhere) asks the physician.
Erasmus has already discussed the situation with the people who made the decision in June and talked to them again in September when he met with East Central Health administrator Jim Saunders in Viking.

A copy of the letter being sent to East Central Health was also being directed to the Provost Medical Centre and after reading a copy of the letter Erasmus says he “completely agrees” with the Provost and District Chamber of Commerce.
