Influenza viruses occur every year in New Brunswick, across Canada and around the world. The best way to be protected is to get the influenza vaccine. Getting the flu shot every year is always recommended, however with the potential risks posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting the spread of influenza is particularly important this year. Getting immunized against the flu will help to reduce the potential strain on our health care system. That’s why this year, the Government of New Brunswick is offering the flu shot free to all New Brunswickers. Prevention starts with you. Contact your primary care provider or pharmacy to book your flu shot today!
