Starting the week of October 26, flu shots will be available to the general public at health care providers and pharmacies throughout Simcoe Muskoka. We will post the link to the provincial flu clinic locator tool on our website as soon as it is available.
Those who have children under the age of five who do not have a health care provider, and those who do not have an Ontario health card can make an appointment with the health unit by calling 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520.
Immunization for those at high risk is available now at health care providers.
The flu is a serious respiratory illness caused by a virus. Anyone can get influenza, but those over 65, young children and people with chronic medical conditions or who are pregnant are more vulnerable and can develop complications such as pneumonia. By getting your shot, you are protecting yourself, as well as those around you.
