Influenza Immunization

The 2022 - 2023 AHS Influenza Immunization Program will begin for all Albertans six months of age and older mid October 2022. AHS is focusing immunization efforts on those at greatest risk of influenza who are unable to access influenza vaccine through pharmacists, physicians or other community providers. Individuals five years of age and older are encouraged to get immunized at their local pharmacy or physician’s office. Please call ahead to your pharmacy or physician office to confirm if they will be offering influenza vaccine in the 2022-2023 season.

** Children less than 5 years age must be immunized at an AHS Clinic or physician office.

An online booking tool will be available to book appointments with AHS Public Health influenza immunization clinics. Please plan ahead and put a reminder on / in your calendar to get your influenza immunization. Vaccine will be offered, free of charge, to all Albertans six months of age and older.

Influenza is serious. Prevention is your protection.
