Flu Shots (2020)

Flu Shots 2020

No more High Dose Flu shots available from the Province.

**UPDATE Thursday November 12, 2020

Niagara Public Health has announced that the high-dose flu shot is no longer available to order.

They recommend that the standard-dose is also safe and effective for patients 65 years and older.

Both the standard-dose and high-dose protect against the flu and the most important thing is for older adults to be vaccinated.

The Ministry has requested that all inquiries about the provincial supply of the influenza vaccine be sent to them directly at: uiip.moh@ontario.ca.
