Flu shot information

Flu vaccines

We are currently planning how we will be delivering flu vaccines this year. Since we have to maintain social distancing and have reduced capacity in the clinics, we cannot operate the same way as previous years. If you would like to get your flu vaccine, we suggest the following options:

  1. Get your flu shot at your local pharmacy. Pharmacists can administer the flu vaccine to people over the age of five and will be receiving the high dose flu vaccines for people over the age of 65. We recommend using this option, especially if you do not live close to one of our clinics. Please check out this website to find a pharmacy near you.

  2. There may also be some local public health clinics offering flu vaccines in your area. Please also consider using this option. Please check Toronto Public Health’s website for more information.

    If you wish to go to a Toronto Public Health Flu Vaccine Clinic you will need to book an appointment. Please go to their online booking page to find a clinic near you and book an appointment.

  3. People with pre-booked in person appointments with their MD, NP or RN for another medical reason can ask to have their flu vaccine at their visit.

  4. If you wish to book a flu shot ONLY with us, you can book into one of our flu clinics. Please call the clinic to book an appointment. Our priority is families with a child five years old and under. You may experience longer wait times, due to the volume of calls. We appreciate your patience.
