The 2020-21 publicly funded (free) flu vaccine program has now concluded. Information for the 2021-22 campaign will be posted here when available.
Early vaccination means you are better protected. The flu vaccine is a safe, effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness and save lives.
The vaccine is available through public health clinics across the province, some physician and nurse practitioner offices and in local pharmacies. Anyone six months and older can receive the flu vaccine. Children age six months to five years must be immunized at a public health clinic, or by a physician or nurse practitioner.
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.
