Influenza (the flu) has the potential to affect us all. It’s imperative that if you wish to protect your family that you get your flu shot. Here at Copperfield Pharmasave, we can help. The flu shot is the most effective way to reduce your chances of contracting the virus and spreading it to the higher-risk members of our community. Our pharmacy is an easy and convenient place to get your flu shot thanks to our friendly and supportive team.

When it comes to children, getting a vaccine isn’t always easy. While we do our best to help make the experience as smooth as possible, there are ways you can help make it easier. You and Your Child — Coping with Vaccine Anxiety, a blog post by Pharmasave, has plenty of great tips and tricks on how help your child get their vaccine.


Flu Shot Frequently Asked Questions


Can I get my flu shot and COVID-19 shot at the same time?

When booking your appointment for your Flu Shot, you’ll need to book another appointment for your COVID vaccine as well but both can be done at the same time. When showing up for your appointment, please arrive at the earlier appointment. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, please see our COVID-19 vaccination page.

Can I bring my children to be vaccinated?

Yes, but each child over the age of 5 needs to have their own appointment time booked. For children under 5 years-old, please contact your family doctor or one of the AHS public health clinics.

Will you accept walk-ins?

Walk-ins will be accepted based on pharmacist and vaccine availability. Walk-ins may also experience longer wait times. Appointments are strongly recommended. If you have questions about walk-in availability or wait-times, please call us at (587)353-5303.

Does the seasonal flu vaccine really work? 

Up to 60% of healthy people who get a flu shot are protected from the virus. Those who still get the flu most likely experience milder symptoms. After you get the vaccine, it can take a couple of weeks to take effect. If you catch a flu virus during that wait period, you won’t be protected.

When should I get vaccinated?

You can get a flu shot at any time during flu season between November and April. But because of the time needed for the vaccine to take effect, we recommend you get your vaccination early before the peak infection time. Ask one of our Pharmasave pharmacists when is the best time for you to get the seasonal flu shot.

Is there any risk involved in getting a seasonal flu shot?

The benefits of prevention outweigh the risks with a flu shot. Very rarely will people experience an allergic reaction. Most experience no side effects or perhaps soreness, redness, or swelling at the spot where the shot was given. Contrary to myth, a flu shot cannot cause the flu, since it never contains any live virus.
