Flu vaccination (Influenza)

Flu vaccination campaign 2021-2022

The flu vaccination campaign started on November 1, 2021.

WHO CAN GET VACCINATED?

The flu vaccine is recommended and offered free of charge to people who are at higher risk of complications : 

  • Children from 6 months to 17 years old who have certain chronic diseases 
  • Adults who have certain chronic diseases (including pregnant women regardless the stage of pregnancy)
  • Pregnant women, in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of their pregnancy 
  • People aged 75 and over.

To reduce the risk of contamination, the flu vaccine is also offered free of charge to : 

  • Family members who live in the same household of a child under 6 months of age or a person at higher risk of being hospitalized and to their caregivers
  • Health care workers

Vaccination is also free for:

  • Healthy children from 6 to 23 months old
  • Healthy adults aged 60 to 74 years old

Flu vaccination does not protect against COVID-19. You can receive the flu and the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time, all in one appointment. However, make sure you have made an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccination.
