Reminder to faculty and staff: Get your flu shot

It’s that time of year again: leaves are changing, the mornings are crisper, and it is time to get your yearly flu shot.

The ‘flu shot’ is an annual immunization against three strains of the influenza (flu) viruses expected to circulate for that year. During influenza season, you can get the flu shot at

  • Family doctors’ offices

*As of October 2012, pharmacists in Ontario can administer flu immunization by injection to persons five years of age and older.
