Vaccinate and protect

Vaccinations are a critical line of defence against respiratory illnesses, particularly in the winter months when the spread of viruses like the flu and COVID-19 is more prevalent.

The importance of vaccination

Getting vaccinated can drastically reduce your chances of severe illness, hospitalization and spreading diseases to others. It is especially important for those at higher risk, such as children under five years, seniors, pregnant people and those with some chronic health conditions.

Vaccination guidance

  • Flu shots: An annual flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over six months of age. It's a simple, effective way to protect yourself during the flu season.
  • COVID-19: Staying up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster doses, is essential for maintaining immunity against the virus.
  • Making it easy: Keep informed about the latest vaccine recommendations and book appointments through the province's Get Vaccinated system. Or, take advantage of drop-in options at pharmacies, walk-in clinics or your family practitioner’s office.
