Influenza Immunization

As of March 31, 2015, the 2014/15 seasonal influenza vaccine is no longer available*. Seasonal influenza vaccine will again be offered starting October 2015, to arm you against the viruses circulating in the 2015/16 influenza season. Remember: it's important to get immunized every season, as early in the season as possible, to be protected.

Please be sure to check this website in late September/early October for updates on the 2015/16 influenza vaccine and season. Thanks for being a Flu Champ!

* If your child requires his or her second dose of Influenza Vaccine after March 31st, call your local community health centre to arrange for appointment. Not sure how to reach your local community health centre? Call Health Link Alberta, 24/7, for guidance.
