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
Health Services flu shot clinics for all other individuals will begin in November. The vaccine can be available into the New Year, especially for travellers. Check at Health Services (519-824-4120, x52131), your family physician’s office, or the WDG Public Health website for details.
