Getting a COVID-19 & Flu Vaccine

Flu & COVID Vaccines are Available through Pharmacies

Cold, Flu, and COVID Clinics were closed in December 2023. 


If you’ve had COVID-19

If you’ve already had COVID-19, you should still be vaccinated for protection from reinfection or severe outcomes. While infection alone provides some protection, vaccination combined with infection helps further improve the immune response.

Even if you’ve recovered from COVID-19, you are not immune and can still get the virus, be contagious while not showing any symptoms, and spread it to others in your community.

If you have had COVID-19, you should wait the following recommended intervals after a confirmed COVID-19 infection (either received a positive test or were symptomatic after having close contact with a test positive case) before receiving your next dose:

  • If you have no vaccinations or are in the process of completing a vaccination series:
    • 2 months (56 days) if you are not immunocompromised and have no history of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) or adults (MIS-A)
    • 1 to 2 months (28 – 56 days) if you are immunocompromised and have no history of MIS-C or MIS-A
    • if you have a history of MIS-C or MIS-A, until clinical recovery has been achieved or up to 90 days since the onset, whichever is longer, regardless of immunocompromised status
  • If you have previously been vaccinated:
    • recommended 6 months (168 days)

Discuss the best timing for you with a health care provider. It can depend on whether your next dose is part of your primary series or a booster dose and on your health status.

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine and flu shot

If you are 6 months and older, you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as, or at any time before or after the flu shot or other routine vaccinations.

Most pharmacies that offer vaccines will have both COVID-19 vaccines and flu shots available for people 2 years of age or older. Check with your pharmacy before you go.

Children 6 months to 2 years old must get their flu shot from:

  • a doctor
  • a nurse practitioner
  • a local public health unit

Children under 2 years old cannot get a flu shot at a pharmacy.
