Question: 

If my family all work from home or stay at home except for getting groceries, do you think it is necessary to get the flu vaccine?

Answer: 

Canada's National Immunization Committee on Immunization recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a yearly influenza vaccination with rare exception. However, there has been a higher than usual demand this year for flu vaccine due to the pandemic. It may reassure you to know that as of mid November, there have not yet been any cases of influenza in the province.
