BC Update: April 2024

The BC public flu vaccine campaign is now finished for this season.

Check back in the fall for information about the 2024-2025 flu vaccine campaign.

Flu vaccines typically start in October of each year.

General flu vaccine information:

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 free (public) flu vaccine at the pharmacy you must be:

  • A resident of BC with a valid BC Services Card

  • Registered with the BC Get Vaccinated System

  • 4 years of age and older for injectable flu vaccine

  • 2 years of age and older for nasal spray flu vaccine (limited availability)

The flu vaccine is usually given as 1 dose per flu season starting in October of each year. 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.
