Make the most of your health and wellness.
Alberta update: October 17, 2023
Flu and Covid appointments are now open and vaccinations have begun.
Appointments may be booked online through the London Drugs booking system, or calling or visiting the pharmacy if you need help booking your appointment.
**Walk-in requests may be accommodated subject to availability.
Canada’s National Advisory Committee for Immunization (NACI) recommends that the influenza vaccine should be offered annually to anyone 6 months of age and older who does not have a contradiction to the vaccine.
To receive a flu vaccine at the pharmacy you must be:
A resident of Alberta with a valid Alberta Health Care Card
5 years of age and older
The flu vaccine is usually given as 1 dose per flu season (Oct to April). Children under 9 years of age who have never had a seasonal influenza vaccine need 2 doses. The second dose of vaccine is important to raise their level of protection and should be given 4 weeks after the first dose.
Please call 811 or visit an Alberta Health Services (AHS) clinic or a participating doctor’s office for:
Children under 5 years of age
International students, visitors, or non-residents of Alberta:
May be eligible to receive a free flu vaccine
