Ontarians Encouraged To Get Flu Shot
(TORONTO, ON) – Ontario is encouraging everyone to avoid getting sick this flu season by getting their annual flu shot.
The flu shot is a safe and effective way to stay healthy. Anyone six months of age and older who lives, works or attends school in Ontario can get the flu shot free of charge. The vaccine is available through doctors’ offices, workplace and community-based flu clinics and at some pharmacy locations.
The flu can leave people ill for up to seven days and can lead to serious health problems such as pneumonia. The elderly, young children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems are especially at high risk of flu-related complications.
Getting the flu shot is an important way to keep our local economies strong – because a healthy workforce is a productive workforce.
