Vaccination programs for the 2013-14 flu season have begun in Canada. It takes about two weeks for full protection from a flu shot to kick in, and it lasts for six months. Since the vaccination programs are managed by the provinces, the timing, priorities and whether or not the shots are free depends on the Canadian province or territory. The links below are to information on the seasonal flu virus and vaccinations in each province and territory in Canada, as well as where to find a clinic near you to get a flu shot.

If you have any questions about whether the flu vaccine is appropriate for you, ask your doctor or a public health practitioner.
