Flu Shot (Influenza Vaccination)

It is strongly recommended that people 6 months of age and older get the flu shot. 

Regular dose and high dose flu vaccines are available at pharmacies. Please notify us if you receive the flu shot outside of our clinic so we can update your records.

We encourage you to get your flu vaccine at your local pharmacy if possible.

We will be offering flu vaccine clinics this year; however, it is best if you do not visit the clinic if the only reason is to get your flu shot. We have gone through our supply of high-dose flu shots. Toronto Public Health is also operating flu clinics or please check website  www.myflushot.ca  to find and book a flu shot nearby you.

If your child is under 5, please book an appointment at our clinic online, as pharmacies cannot administer vaccines to anyone 5 and under.

* Please do not book an appointment for a flu shot if you are feeling unwell. Patients coming to the clinic for a flu shot who have new symptoms will be asked to reschedule*
