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.

Please note, if you wish to have FluMist nasal spray for a child age 2-17, it will be available in Whitehorse starting October 19. In communities contact your health centre for an availability date.

Is it free?

The flu shot is free for Yukon residents.

When can you get your flu shot?

Flu shots begin in many communities on October 12.

Some clinics are for those considered high risk. High risk individuals are those who:

  • have chronic heart, lung, kidney and liver conditions;
  • have diabetes;
  • have immune suppressed individuals;
  • are children under the age of 5;
  • are pregnant women;
  • are seniors age 65 or older; and

Check clinic listings for the dates and times in your community.

What to expect

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

  • 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 warm 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.
