On behalf of the UPEI Health Centre Team, we would like to encourage all campus Faculty, Staff and Students Staff to get the flu shot. The best way to protect yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated each year.

Health PEI offers Public Health Nursing Community Flu Vaccination Clinics. These Clinics are provided on a walk-in basis, no appointments are required.

The Flu Clinic Information Line, 1-855-354-4358 (4FLU) is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and provides up-to-date information about flu vaccination clinic dates, time and locations in your area.

Flu vaccinations are also available through your family physician or nurse practitioner and at local pharmacies across the province.

Where can I get more information about the flu?

For more information about the flu, how it spreads, symptoms, or how you can protect yourself and others, visit About Influenza (the flu).
