Stay Healthy This Flu Season

Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the flu. It takes two weeks for the vaccine to boost immunity. The flu vaccine will not protect against colds and other respiratory illnesses not caused by the influenza virus.

Toronto Public Health flu vaccination clinics are now complete. It’s not too late to get your flu vaccine. Flu vaccination is free at doctors’ offices, walk-in clinics and local pharmacies.

Seniors

Seniors are at risk of serious complications from the flu. The high-dose flu vaccine is the preferred choice for seniors. It provides better protection against influenza A. This vaccine is free at doctors’ offices, long-term care homes and walk-in clinics.

Stay Healthy this Flu Season

  1. Get your flu shot early.
  2. Wash your hands often.
  3. Cover your cough or sneeze.
  4. Disinfect toys, door handles, cell phones.
