Getting the Flu Shot


  • The Health Unit does not currently have a supply of 23/24 flu vaccines. We anticipate that flu vaccines will become available late September/early October, starting with those at highest risk (residents of long-term care homes).
  • We will provide an update on when and where the public can access flu vaccines as soon as we receive provincial guidance.
  • We strongly encourage individuals who are at a higher risk of complications from the flu to get immunized as soon as flu vaccines become available to you. It takes up to two weeks to build up your immunity.
  • People living in Thunder Bay: Updates on flu vaccine availability for 23/24 at TBDHU’s Community Vaccine Clinic will be shared to our Immunization Clinics page. See the “Who Gives the Flu Shot?” tab below for other locations where you can access the flu vaccine.
  • People living in District communities: Health care providers in your community are organizing flu vaccine clinics for both rostered and non-rostered patients. Please contact the health care provider in your community or a pharmacy to access the flu vaccine. Flu vaccines are also available to those receiving COVID-19 vaccines at TBDHU district clinics.
