Why should you get the flu vaccine?

The flu shot can prevent up to 80% of flu infections in healthy people!

  • Reduce your chances of getting the flu
  • Protect the people around you (you can spread the virus without showing symptoms) 
  • It's contagious and can spread quickly and easily
  • The flu can lead to serious complications including pneumonia and respiratory failure 
  • The vaccine is safe 

The flu is responsible for about 12,200 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths in Canada each year.

Be proactive! 

  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly
  • Keep your hands away from your face
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that you touch often
  • Cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand

If you do get sick:

Follow the tips above (under being proactive) and stay home until your symptoms are gone.
