Flu Vaccine


What you need to know about getting a flu shot

The most effective way to decrease complications and reduce the impact of the flu is to get a flu shot. Health Canada recommends everyone 6 months and older should get the annual flu vaccine as soon as it is available because it takes about two weeks after your flu shot for the protective antibodies to develop in the body. Get your flu shot early to protect yourself before flu viruses begin spreading in your community.

With COVID-19 circulating in our communities, we will be taking the necessary precautions to make sure both you and our staff are well protected during the time spent in our pharmacies. For these safety reasons, the flu shot process will be a little different this year. For instance, some of the changes you may see include:

  • You will be required to book an appointment.
      • To be placed on our waitlist, visit our online scheduling site or call the pharmacy at 403-933-7979.
  • You will be required to fill out a flu consent form prior to your appointment.
      • If using the online portal, please fill out as much information as you can before your appointment.
  • If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, please wait until you are symptom free before making an appointment.
  • We do have walk-ins available
  • Pharmacists will wear appropriate protective gear.
  • Surfaces and high-touch areas will be sanitized between appointments.
