The Government says its easier than ever to get your flu shot this year – through your family doctor, nurse-led flu immunization clinics and now at participating pharmacies.
Starting this week, specially trained pharmacists can give the flu shot to Ontarians, age five and over.
· The flu shot is offered free of charge to everyone six months of age and older who lives, works or attends school in Ontario.
· People with the flu may be contagious even before symptoms appear and up to seven days after becoming sick.
· It is impossible to get the flu from the flu shot.
You can find a health care provider offering the flu shot near you at Ontario.ca/flu
