What is a Flu Shot?
A flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu season generally occurs during the fall, winter and early spring. London Drugs pharmacists certified in providing flu shots can help protect you from the seasonal flu, and help ensure you’re up-to-date with any other vaccinations you may require* such as:
*This may vary from province to province. Please check with your pharmacist for details.
How will you benefit from a Flu Shot?
The Public Health Agency of Canada recommends the flu shot for everyone over the age of six months since some of the most serious flu viruses can pose a risk even to young, healthy people*. Please note that certain groups should not get vaccinated. Also, it's important to note that flu virus strains around the globe are constantly changing and annual vaccine production is based on the most active virus expected in the coming flu season. You can refer here for more information.
* The flu shot is available at all London Drugs locations and they can vaccinate children aged 5 years and up in Alberta.
What to Know Before your Flu Shot Visit
The flu shot does not cause the flu. Injectable flu vaccines do not contain any live virus - so they cannot cause the flu. The side effects of vaccines are usually minor. The most common side effects are injection site reactions including soreness, redness or swelling.
Severe reactions to the vaccine are extremely rare.
