Influenza Immunization

Influenza has arrived in Alberta.

If you haven't been immunized yet this season, you're at risk.

The good news? Influenza vaccine is still available.

All Albertans (six months of age and older) can still get immunized, free of charge.

Start your year healthy, and stay that way.

Get immunized today.
