Flu Shot 2022


Ottawa Public Health has officially announced the start of flu season – what does this mean for you?

We strongly encourage everyone aged 6 months and older to get their flu vaccine.

If you are over 65 and you receive your flu vaccine through Ottawa Public Health clinic, please contact your doctor’s office. We will add this information to your chart.

 Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are limited in the number of vaccines that we can offer this year.

    reasonable alternative
