Vaccines and Flu Clinics

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

It’s now more convenient than ever to get your FREE flu shot:

  • your health care provider; make an appointment or ask if a walk-in clinic is offered
  • a Health Unit Clinic; see the schedule below for dates in October and November
  • a pharmacy; most clinics in the City of Thunder Bay are now providing the shot
  • your workplace; check to see if a staff clinic is offered

Click on the links below for more information: 



  • As part of this year’s free provincial flu shot program, Ontario has made available a nasal spray vaccine, brand name FluMist®, for children between the ages of 2 to 17 to protect them against four strains of the flu. For children between the ages of 2 and 17, FluMist® is provided for free.


  • In Thunder Bay, FluMist® is available at all Health Unit clinics starting.


  • If a parent wants their child to receive FluMist®, a health care provider will screen for eligibility. If the child is not eligible for FluMist®, an injectable vaccine is available which protects against the same four strains of the flu.


  • In addition to the Health Unit flu shot clinics, beginning October 26, FluMist® will be also available from health care providers and pharmacies. However, pharmacies will only provide flu vaccine to children who are 5 years of age or older. The public is encouraged to call ahead before visiting their provider to make sure FluMist® is available. 


  • Adults between the ages of 18 and 59 years can receive FluMist®, but it is only available at pharmacies for cost.
