What is an Influenza Vaccine 

The influenza vaccine, also known as the flu shot, is a vaccine that helps protect against the flu.

Influenza vaccine is made from inactivated flu viruses and is formulated each year to protect against the most common strains of the virus that are expected to circulate.

We recommend that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine each year. Certain groups are at higher risk of developing serious complications from the flu and are especially encouraged to get vaccinated, including:

  • Frequent travellers

  • Adults aged 65 years and older
