Flu Shot Information 2021


If you are over 65 and you receive your flu vaccine at the pharmacy or Ottawa Public Health clinic, please email us at flushot@rideaufht.ca to let us know. We will add this information to your chart.

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

We are recommending to all our patients, this year, to get the flu vaccine at any pharmacy. Flu vaccines are available at most pharmacies for people 5 years and older and are able to administer either the regular dose OR HIGH DOSE (for people 65 years and older). If you are over 65 and the high dose shot is not available, the regular flu vaccine is a reasonable alternative.

Ottawa Public Health will also be holding flu vaccine clinics. More information can be found here
