Question: 

I would like to receive the flu vaccine, however I tend to get light-headed when I receive shots. It there a bed I could book so that I can lay down while receiving the shot

Answer: 

Each clinic location will differ and ImmunizeBC does not have information about clinic setups. We recommend that you speak with someone at the clinic you hope to have your flu shot at to discuss your options. It would also be important that you have eaten prior and be sure to wait at least 15 minutes after receiving the shot. This year, it’s more important than ever to protect ourselves and others around us from influenza, especially our health care workers and those who may be more likely to develop severe illness that would put them in hospital. Use the Influenza (Flu) Clinic locator to find a clinic near you.
