Influenza - Flu vaccination 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA for FREE seasonal influenza vaccination in 2022:

  • Pregnant women (any trimester)
  • People aged 65 years older

  • Children aged 3 to 12 years inclusive

If you are not eligible for a funded vaccine, you can still get your vaccine through our pharmacy for a fee.

Immunity from the flu vaccination is expected to last for three to four months, so April to June are the best months to be vaccinated to allow the vaccine to work at its peak during the flu season. 

As the immunity wears off and the strains of the virus mutate each year, it is important that you have the flu vaccine each year. 

In 2022, we will be using the vaccine Afluria Quad.
