It’s time to get your flu shot. This is a different flu season, so getting your influenza vaccine to protect yourself and those around you is more important than ever.
The Porcupine Health Unit encourages everyone to receive the influenza vaccine. We will be offering free community-based immunization clinics throughout the month of November. You can also call your primary health care provider or visit your local pharmacy to receive your influenza vaccine.
Do you have questions about Influenza and the flu vaccine like "Does the influenza vaccine protect me from COVID-19?" See our flu facts page.
You will notice a new look when arranging your appointment/registrations online. This change is the result of the health unit’s move to a new booking system called Front Desk.
There can be issues when implementing a new system. If you have any issues booking online, please contact the health unit at 1-800-461-1181 for help.
