Influenza Immunization (Flu Shot)

Huron Perth Public Heath (HPPH) encourages everyone over the age of 6 months old to get the influenza vaccine each fall to protect against the virus and stop the spread of influenza in our community.

Please note that while the influenza vaccine protects against the influenza virus, it does not protect against COVID-19.

Where to get the influenza vaccine (flu shot)

You can get the influenza vaccine:

  • Through your family doctor's office or nurse practitioner (ages 6 months and older)
  • At pharmacies across Huron and Perth counties (ages 5 years and older)
  • If you do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner, you can get the influenza vaccine through Huron Perth Public Health. (See below for more information)

Remember, when getting the flu shot, follow COVID-19 public health measures:

  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer
  • Maintain physical distance from those outside your household, following signage and markers
  • Stay home if you are sick, feeling unwell, or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
