Flu Vaccination Clinics

Get the flu shot, not the flu

The best way to protect yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated each year.

All Health PEI Public Health Nursing offices offer community Flu Vaccination Clinics.

Flu vaccinations are also available through your family physician or nurse practitioner and at local pharmacies across the province.

Will I have to pay for a flu shot?

The flu vaccine is free to all individuals living in Prince Edward Island. If you have a PEI Health Card, please bring it with you to the clinic.

If you are not a Canadian resident, the fee is $40 for the flu vaccine. 

Will I have to register when I arrive at a vaccination clinic?

Upon arrival, you will be required to fill out a registration form. You must have your valid provincial health card with you. To reduce registration time, complete the top section of the Influenza Immunization Clinic Registration Form (2019/2020) [PDF | 24 KB] and bring it with you. 

If you are taking a child who you are not the parent or legal guardian of, you must bring the Influenza Immunization Clinic Registration Form (2019/2020)  [PDF | 24 KB] with the consent section signed by the parent or legal guardian with you, as well as the child’s provincial health card.
