The Flu can be a serious disease.

  • Flu is very contagious and can spread quickly and easily.
  • You can pass the flu on to others who may be at risk of serious complications, before you even know you are sick.
  • The flu is responsible for about 12,200 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths per year and can affect everyone, including those who are healthy.

You need to get vaccinated every year.

  • The effects of the flu vaccine can wear off, so you need to get a new one every year to stay protected.
  • Flu viruses change each year. Experts create a new vaccine to protect you each flu season.

You can’t get the Flu from the flu vaccine.

  • The viruses in the flu vaccine are either killed or weakened and cannot give you the flu.
  • The Flu vaccine is safe.
  • The flu vaccine has benefited millions of Canadians since 1946.
  • Most people don’t have reactions to the flu vaccine; those who do may have soreness, redness or swelling at the injection site.
  • Severe reactions to the vaccine are extremely rare.

Everybody wins when you get vaccinated.

  • By getting the flu vaccine, you protect yourself and others because you are less likely to spread the flu.
  • It’s a simple action that can save lives. (Source: Know the Flu facts, Health Canada )
