Flu Vaccination Clinics

The best way to protect yourself and others from the flu is to get vaccinated each year. Beginning on October 5, 2015, call 1-855-354-4358 (4FLU) to book an appointment at a flu vaccination clinic in a community near you.

The hours of operation for the flu phone line are Monday to Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Messages may be left after hours, and calls will be returned the following business day.

You can also contact your local pharmacist, family physician, or nurse practitioner to arrange to get your vaccine.

FluMist (nasal vaccine for children and youth 2-17 years old) will be available after November 1, 2015.


Will I have to pay for a flu shot?
If you are a Canadian living in PEI or visiting from another province, you must pay a $7 administration fee and bring your provincial health card with you. If you are not a Canadian citizen, the fee is $40 for the flu vaccine. This cost is covered if you are an Islander who is:

  • a senior age 65+;
  • a child age 6-59 months;
  • a pregnant woman or any individual living in a household with a pregnant woman;
  • a resident of a community care facility; or
  • an individual who identifies as Aboriginal.


Will I have to register when I arrive at a vaccination clinic?
Upon arrival, you will be required to fill out a registration form. You must have your valid provincial health card with you. To reduce registration time, complete the top section of the clinic registration form and bring it with you.

If you are taking a child who you are not a parent or legal guardian of, you must bring a signed parental consent for influenza immunization form with you, as well as the child’s provincial health card.


Where can I get a flu shot?
Flu clinics were held in various communities during the fall/winter 2015.  You can still get your vaccine for the 2015/16 flu season by calling 1-855-354-4358 and booking an appointment at a Public Health Nursing office.
