All Ontarians should get their flu shot. Unless there is a medical reason not to, everyone aged 6 months or older can benefit from getting the seasonal flu shot.
Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care:
Receive your flu shot early this season. The sooner you receive the flu shot, the sooner you are protected. Seasonal flu vaccine will be offered by appointment at local healthcare providers. The vaccine is also being offered at some pharmacies listed below.
The influenza vaccine is provided free of charge and recommended for everyone six months of age and older, and particularly those at high risk for complications from influenza.
Flu shots provided at local pharmacies in Lambton County. Please call the pharmacy directly for clinic dates and times.
