OPINION

I was pleased to read that the Liberals introduced a bill to cover all seniors for the high-dose flu vaccine. I am 76 and recently diagnosed with asthma so I decided I should get the high dose this year. I expected to pay the difference between the regular shot, which is covered under our health care. However, I had to pay the full cost plus a dispensing fee. An email to my MLA received a brush off. “We have no system in place to reimburse you for the extra cost of the high dose.” Really, no system in place! Not even the courtesy of a plausible excuse.
