Flu season generally runs from October to April each year. The flu shot is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. Residents of Ontario can get a flu shot for free from their doctor, pharmacist (ages 5 and up) or Public Health. Note that pharmacies don’t have the high-dose vaccine that is available for those ages 65 and older.

Clinic dates are subject to change. Check back often for the most up-to-date information.
