Families are Encouraged to Get a Free Flu Shot

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

As the cold weather approaches, Ontario is reminding everyone about the importance of getting their free flu shot to protect themselves from getting the flu and spreading it to others.

The free flu shot is especially important for young children, pregnant women and people 65 years and older who are at high risk of flu-related complications. It will be available at family doctor and nurse practitioner offices, public health units and participating pharmacies for anyone five years of age or older. For children between six months and four years old, the shot can be administered by a doctor or nurse practitioner.
