Flu vaccines are now available for free at Iqaluit Public Health in Building 1091.

A public service announcement from the Department of Health earlier this week said that having people vaccinated against influenza will reduce the pressure on Nunavut’s health-care system in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19.

Appointments will be necessary and are available at the following times:

  • Tuesdays to Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. (Elders only.)
  • Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To book an appointment, call 975-4810.

For the health and safety of everyone, those receiving a shot are encouraged to wear their own mask to their appointment.

      I hope you don’t catch the flu then, but I’m going, I go every year, had the flu a few years ago but thankfully because of the vaccine it wasn’t too bad and didn’t last as long.
      Older people, people with health issues, please go get your flu shot, it really helps, don’t listen to the anti vaxxors and their myths, if you are unsure read up on the vaccines and how they work, lots of scientific information out there, facts and proven research.

    why do you think people should not go? Can you explain your reason? I normally don’t get the flu vaccine but this year like during the H1N1 year I plan to do it to protect people around me and to avoid overloading our Healthcare System in case we are stuck with covid and the flu. Of course I’m doing it for myself too.
