Question: 

It's Dec 1 and the flu vaccine is not available at pharmacies or my doctor's office. I am a senior living with a health care worker and caring for toddlers. What can I do?

Answer: 

Influenza vaccine shipments will continue to arrive at various locations across the province (e.g., pharmacies, health units, community clinics, etc.) over the next several weeks. Please come back to our Flu Clinic Locator at a later date or check in with the pharmacies near you. You can also go to your health authority website for more information on booking an appointment at a public health clinic. You could also try calling your local health unit to see if they have information. You can find their number here. A local walk in clinic may have vaccine if your family doctor doesn't. It may reassure you to know that as of mid November, there had not yet been any cases of influenza in the province. BC healthcare providers are working hard to deliver the influenza vaccine in a timely manner while ensuring the safety of the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your patience at this time.
