Everything you need to know about where and when you can get a flu shot this year can be found at
4flu.ca. There’s a page dedicated to
finding a clinic near you.
The provincial publicly-funded influenza program got underway Monday, October 19, 2020. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and get your flu shot as soon as you can.
If you can’t attend a flu clinic in your community or area, most people have several options for where to get it. The exception are children aged six months to five years, who must be immunized at a public health clinic, or by a physician or nurse practitioner. For adults and children over five years of age, the vaccine is available through public health clinics across Saskatchewan, some physician and nurse practitioner offices and in most local pharmacies.
Anyone six months of age and older can receive the flu vaccine. Getting vaccinated is especially important for people at high-risk of influenza complications (pregnant women, young children, elderly, persons with underlying health conditions, immune-compromised) and their caregivers.
Please note that this year, most Saskatchewan Health Authority flu clinics are by appointment only, though there are some drop in clinics. Details on booking appointments can be found on
Please be aware some booking lines are experiencing heavy volumes. If you can’t get through right away, please be patient and phone back later.
Once you do get through you may be on hold for several minutes as we anticipate a large number of people wanting to get their shots this year. Wait times will vary by location.
