Protect yourself, your family and your community.

Please note : Pharmacists administer flu shot to Ontarians five years of age and older. Visit your doctor or local public health flu clinic if you have children from six months to less than five years old.

Influenza, commonly known as "the flu," is a serious, acute respiratory illness that can lead to pneumonia. It is caused by a virus.

Immunization helps strengthen your body's natural immune response against the flu. The flu shot stimulates your immune system to build antibodies against the virus, making it stronger and ready to fight off the flu.
