This flu season, there will be two flu vaccines offered in Ontario:

  • People aged 65 and over, and those living in long term care facilities, will be offered the seasonal flu vaccine in October. Everyone else aged 6 months and over will be offered the seasonal flu vaccine in December or January, to give them a chance to get the H1N1 vaccine first.
  • People aged 6 months and over will be offered the H1N1 flu vaccine starting in November.

The seasonal flu vaccine will NOT protect against the H1N1 flu virus.
