Flu Vaccination Clinics
The best way to protect yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated each year.
Health PEI Public Health Nursing offers Community Flu Vaccination Clinics in various locations across the province. Flu vaccinations are also available through your family physician or nurse practitioner and at local pharmacies across the province.
What is new for the 2021-2022 year?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Public Health Nursing Community Flu Vaccination Clinics will only be offered by booked appointments. Booked appointments will ensure there is a safe number of people in the clinic at any given time. Individuals are required to wear a non-medical mask to the appointment.
FluMist® (nasal spray) is available only at the Public Health Nursing Community Flu Vaccination Clinics.
Individuals over 65 years of age are recommended to receive the influenza High-Dose Vaccine this year. The High-Dose Vaccine is currently available at the Public Health Nursing Community Flu Vaccination Clinics, as well as community pharmacies.
