Flu season typically runs from late fall to early spring.

 

This year’s flu season is taking place at the same time as COVID-19. Don’t take any unnecessary risks with your health. Get the flu shot and get it early.

 

The flu shot is recommended for everyone 6 months old and older.

You should get a flu shot as soon as possible because it takes two weeks to take effect.

 

Children six months to four years old can get their flu shot from a doctor, nurse practitioner or local public health unit. Children under five years old cannot get a flu shot at a pharmacy.

 

For the 2020/2021 season, if you’re 65 and older, there are two different flu shots available – standard dose and high-dose.

The standard-dose vaccine protects against four strains of flu virus. The high-dose vaccine, (also called “Fluzone® HighDose”) protects against three strains of flu virus, but in higher doses.
