Find a flu shot clinic

Flu season generally runs from October to April. Every person 6 months and older can get a flu shot. Help protect yourself and your family from getting the flu.
 
In the Yukon we offer three different types of flu vaccines.
  • FluMist is available to 2-17 year olds (nasal spray).
  • Fluzone is available to anyone over 6 months.
  • Fluzone High Dose is available to those 65 years of age and older.

Children under 9 years of age who have never had a seasonal influenza vaccine need 2 doses. The second dose raises their level of protection. It should be given 4 weeks after the first dose.

Will this affect my COVID-19 vaccine?

For those 12 and older, you can get your flu shot at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccines for 5 to 11 year olds will be available in the coming weeks. 5 to 11 year olds should have 14-days between receiving any vaccines and the COVID-19 vaccine. If your child has not yet received their shot, you might want to delay their flu shot to a later date. This will allow them to receive their COVID-19 vaccine earlier.

Is it free?

The flu shot is free for Yukon residents.

Where can you get your flu shot?

Starting November 18, Whitehorse residents age 5 and older must get their flu shot at a pharmacy.

Families with children age 6 months to 4 years can receive their flu shot at the Yukon Convention Centre.

If your family has a child under 5 and a child older than 5, you can all receive your flu shots at the Convention Centre.

If you already have an appointment booked, your appointment will be honoured.

Pharmacies

Most pharmacies in Whitehorse are offering flu vaccine this year. It's available at pharmacies for anyone age 5 and up.
 
Families with children age 6 months to 4 years must use clinics. These clinics are at the Coast High Country Inn Convention Centre in Whitehorse or at the health centre in communities.
 
If you are booking for someone 5 or older, use a pharmacy. This will leave more clinic appointments for families of young children.

What to expect

With the COVID-19 pandemic, flu clinics will look different. Here's what to expect upon arrival at flu clinics across the Yukon:

  • the possibility of longer wait times;
  • screening for illness or exposure to COVID-19;
  • physical distancing requirements;
  • increased environmental cleaning;
  • use of hand sanitizer provided at entry;
  • standard post vaccine wait times will still be followed to keep you safe; and
  • extended clinical hours to accommodate an increase in demand.

No other immunizations will be given at this year’s Whitehorse flu clinic except for the COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone born in 2009 or earlier can receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the flu shot. This only applies to Whitehorse flu clinics at the Coast High Country Inn Convention Centre.

How to prepare for this year’s flu clinic

Here are some tips to help prepare you for this year’s flu clinics:

  • dress warmly with layers that are appropriate for the weather ‒ there may be extended wait times before you're allowed in the clinic;
  • come prepared with your health care card ready;
  • be prepared to answer COVID-19 screening questions;
  • wear clothing that allows easy access to your arm such as a T-shirt or tank top; and
  • wearing a non-medical mask is recommended but is not mandatory.

Remember to always:

  • practise the Safe 6;
  • practise respiratory etiquette and proper hand-washing;
  • follow signage; and
  • respect staff and volunteers.

COVID-19 safety information

Do not come to the flu clinic if you feel sick. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 phone 811 or go to the COVID-19 Testing Assessment Centre (CTAC) to get tested. You'll have a chance to get the flu vaccine at another time.
