Where to get your flu vaccination

·         The vaccine is now available from most pharmacists, family doctors, family practice nurses and nurse practitioners.
·         Many workplaces also offer flu vaccination clinics for employees.
·         Some walk-in clinics may also offer flu vaccination; it’s best to check with a clinic in advance.
·         Pharmacists can provide flu vaccination to children five years of age and older.
·         If you have a child under five years of age who does not have a health care provider, please contact your local Public Health office to arrange their flu shot.
 
In some areas of the province, Public Health offers public flu shot clinics that focus on immunizing families with young children, pregnant women, and people who have challenges accessing a health care provider. The current schedule for these clinics is below. Please note that some are drop-in, while others are by appointment.
