What you need to know about getting the 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 necessary precautions to make sure both you and our staff are well protected during time spent in our pharmacy.

For these safety reasons, the flu shot process will be a little different this year.

  • You will need to fill out the consent form prior to your visit into our store for your flu shot.
    • Download the form here.
  • You will be screened for Covid-19 before you receive your flu shot. Anyone showing any symptoms or are feeling unwell, or have been in contact with a positive case of Covid-19 will not be able to receive their flu shot.
  • You will be required to wear a mask/face covering
  • Our Pharmacists will wear appropriate protective equipment
  • The clinic room and all its high touch areas and surfaces will be sanitized between clients

Please call your Pharmasave Black Diamond Pharmacist at 403.933.7979 for any other questions or concerns in regards to this year’s flu season.
