The free flu vaccine is available through public health clinics across the province, and some physician and Nurse Practitioner offices, as in previous years.
This year pharmacists can also provide free flu vaccinations as part of the province’s influenza immunization program. Over 250 of the 360 community pharmacies in the province are participating.
All residents 6 months and older can get the injectable flu vaccine at public flu clinics. FluMist (nasal vaccine) is available from public health clinics to children between the ages of two and 17.
Pharmacists offer only injectable vaccine (not nasal vaccine) to adults and children 9 years of age and older with a valid Saskatchewan health card. Children under 9 will need to be vaccinated at a public health clinic.
