  • Get vaccinated against the seasonal flu


    The influenza vaccination campaign is over for 2022-2023.

    Protect your health and that of your loved ones! Get your flu shot!

    Vaccination remains the best way to protect against the flu, mainly for people with a chronic illness and those aged 75 and over. The latter have a much higher risk of complication, hospitalization or death linked to this virus.

    Remember that applying simple hygiene measures, such as washing your hands, is a good way to protect yourself against the flu and other respiratory viruses.

    Who should get vaccinated?

    Everyone aged six months or older is eligible to receive the flu vaccine free of charge this year. The vaccine is recommended for people who are at higher risk of complications:

    • Children from 6 months to 17 years old who have /typo3conf/l10n/fr/rtehtmlarea/Resources/Private/Language/fr.locallang_accessibilityicons.xlf:external_link_new_window_altTextcertain chronic diseases
    • Adults who have /typo3conf/l10n/fr/rtehtmlarea/Resources/Private/Language/fr.locallang_accessibilityicons.xlf:external_link_new_window_altTextcertain chronic diseases (including pregnant women regardless the stage of pregnancy)
    • Pregnant women, in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of their pregnancy
    • People aged 75 and over.

    To reduce the risk of contamination, the flu vaccine is also offered free of charge to:

    • Family members who live in the same household of a child under 6 months of age or a person at higher risk of being hospitalized and to their caregivers
    • Health care workers

    Flu vaccination is also free of charge to:

    • Healthy children from 6 to 23 months old
    • Healthy people from 60 to 74 years old

    Flu and COVID-19 vaccination 

    You can get vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19 at the same vaccination session. There is no prescribed waiting period between the two vaccines.
    They provide the same protection against disease whether they are administered at the same time or multiple days or weeks apart. No specific issues have been reported following the administration of these two vaccines at the same vaccination session.

    Note: When making your appointment on Clic Santé, a question will be asked at the very end of your registration to find out if you also wish to receive a vaccine against COVID-19. You will be able to make an appointment at a time slot similar to that of the flu shot. Both vaccines will be given at the same time at the vaccination clinic. 


    If you have a fever or any other /typo3conf/l10n/fr/rtehtmlarea/Resources/Private/Language/fr.locallang_accessibilityicons.xlf:external_link_new_window_altText symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have received instructions from Public Health to self-isolate because of COVID-19, you must postpone getting vaccinated. 

    The flu vaccine does not protect you against COVID-19 and does not make COVID-19 symptoms worse if you get infected.

    When you come for your appointment, please bring the following with you:

    • Your health insurance card;
    • Your immunization record (if you have one);  
    • The confirmation number for your appointment; 
    • mask or face covering;
    • Wear a short-sleeved shirt.
