You need both COVID-19 and INFLUENZA VACCINES to protect yourself, your family and your community. Don’t have your COVID-19 vaccine? It’s safe to get it together with your influenza vaccine.
The 2021-2022 Alberta Influenza Immunization Program is currently underway. All Albertans, six months of age and older, are eligible to be immunized, free of charge. COVID-19 continues to put pressure on our healthcare system. Getting immunized against influenza is more important this season, than ever before.
Influenza is serious. Immunization works.
AHS is offering vaccine through public health clinics to:
- Children under five years of age and their family and household members
- Individuals who do not have a provincial health care number
- Individuals who live in a community where there are no other immunizing healthcare providers
Children under five years of age must be immunized at an AHS clinic or participating doctor’s office. Albertans five years of age and older can get immunized at participating pharmacies and doctor’s offices. Contact your pharmacy or doctor’s office to find out more.
Influenza immunization will protect you and your loved ones, as well as vulnerable seniors, children and those with chronic health conditions. By keeping the number of influenza cases and outbreaks low, we can also do our part to help healthcare workers focus on the COVID-19 response.
