Flu vaccination (Influenza)

Flu vaccination campaign 2021-2022

The flu vaccination campaign started on November 1, 2021.


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.  



This year, making an appointment is mandatory and is the only way to get vaccinated.
