Warning of a potential severe flu season, the Centers for Disease Control recommends anyone over 6 months old get the vaccination by the end of October.

The flu vaccine is available at public health clinics, pharmacies, and some doctors and nurse practitioners' offices.

In September, Congress approved $140 million in new federal funding toward a universal flu vaccine. Flu shots are free to residents of Saskatchewan. In particular, the authority advised that the shot should be given to young children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with health conditions that might weaken their immune system, as these groups are especially at risk of developing complications from the flu.

A free walk in clinic at the University of Regina on October 22 is one of 24 locations where people can get their flu shot in Regina this year.

"Don't wait. Get your flu shot early in the season to protect yourself, your family and those to whom you provide care".

Chokani said the hope among officials was that every person would make a point of getting the free flu shot as a way of protecting themselves and others against the four different strains most likely to circulate this season. "Also, starting this year the role of pharmacists has been expanded to allow them to administer the free flu shot to residents five years and older, during home visits, and in congregate living settings".
