Immunization & Flu Clinics
Seasonal Flu Shots Are Free for Everyone
All residents of Ontario over 6 months of age are eligible to receive the annual influenza vaccine at no charge. The vaccine is available at Health Services, your family physician, or through Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health or other public health units throughout the province.
It is important to get the vaccine every year as the vaccine changes annually to protect against the Influenza A and B strains determined to be most prevalent that year.
Generally, by mid-to-late October the vaccine is available through Health Services or your family physician to high priority individuals, which includes:
- persons 65 years of age or older
- adults and children with chronic cardiac or pulmonary disorders
- persons who have chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer or immune problems
- children and adolescents (6 months to 18 years) with conditions treated for long periods with ASA
Additional details about the flu vaccine can be obtained through Health Services (519-824-4120, x52131), your family physician’s office, or the WDG Public Health website.
