Get immunized against influenza

COVID-19 immunization is also available.
Health professionals: Visit Influenza Immunization Information for Health Professionals for more information.

Why immunize?


Influenza immunization is the best way to protect yourself and the people around you against influenza. It’s recommended that all Albertans age 6 months and older get the influenza vaccine every year.

Influenza immunization is free. Immunization will be available starting on October 16, 2023 with appointment booking opening on October 10.

It’s safe to receive both the COVID-19 and influenza vaccine at the same time. The COVID-19 and influenza vaccines are administered as separate doses, but you may choose to receive both immunizations at the same appointment.
