Flu Immunization Campaign Begins
Alberta Health Services
EDMONTON – Alberta’s influenza immunization campaign launches today, offering influenza vaccine, free of charge, to all Albertan six months of age and older.
The easiest way for most Albertans to get immunized against influenza is to call a local pharmacy or doctor’s office. Please call ahead to confirm availability. Alberta Health Services (AHS) clinics are offering influenza immunization to those under five years of age and their immediate families or household members only. Appointments are required and can be booked online at www.ahs.ca/influenza
Influenza immunization is more important this season than ever before. Influenza immunization will protect Albertans and their loved ones, as well as vulnerable seniors, children and those with chronic health conditions. By keeping the number of influenza cases and outbreaks low, Albertans can also help healthcare workers focus on the COVID-19 response.
