Question: 

Hi There. Sorry, this might be a silly question but can a non-Canadian citizen on a working holiday visa get the flu vaccine?

Answer: 

Certain individuals, such as some holders of study and/or work permits that are valid for a period of six months or more (including post-secondary international students),  may be deemed residents and are eligible for publicly-funded (free) pre-exposure vaccines. Tourists or visitors from outside of Canada do not qualify. Flu vaccines may be available for purchase at a local pharmacy or travel clinic.
