Vaccination Campaign

Who should get the vaccine?

Vaccination is recommended and offered free of charge to those who are at higher risk of developing complications, such as:

  • People aged 6 months or older with certain chronic conditions or diseases (e.g., : diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory or kidney disease, immunosuppression, etc.);  
  • People aged 75 years or older;
  • Pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters and those with certain chronic diseases (regardless the stage of pregnancy).

In order to reduce the risk of contamination, vaccination is also offered free of charge to 

  • People living under the same roof (caregivers) than people being part of at-risk groups
  • Close relations of children under 6 months
  • Healthcare workers

Expansion of vaccination: exceptionally this year, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux is making the influenza vaccination available free of charge to all Quebecers who wish to take it. Read the Flu Vaccine Program for details.

***Children aged 6 to 23 months and healthy adults aged 60 to 74 years are no longer targeted for vaccination. The vaccine, however, is available free of charge to these people if they wish to receive it.          

Please note that the seasonal flu vaccine does not protect against COVID-19.
