Where Can I get the flu shot this season?
The flu shot will be provided this year by local pharmacies and some health care providers. 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 for a flu shot with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit. To find a pharmacy offering flu shots near you, enter your address or postal code at this link.
What if I am bringing a grandchild, or someone unable to provide their own consent to a health unit flu clinic?:
If you are bringing a young child OR, anyone unable to give their own informed consent to a health unit flu clinic and you are not the parent or legal guardian you must come with a signed consent that gives direction to us to administer the flu shot to that particular person from the parent/legal guardian or power of attorney for each person. If there is no signed consent we are unable to provide the flu vaccine to that person.
