Vaccination : Your best protection against the flu

If you have symptoms of a contagious illness, such as the flu or gastroenteritis, we would ask that you do not visit anyone who lives at Saint Brigid's or the Jeffery Hale until you feel better.

If you cannot postpone your visit, however, please talk to the head nurse on the care unit first to find out what precautions should be put in place.

All 2020-2021 vaccination clinics operate by appointment ONLY

The Quebec Influenza Immunization Program (Programme d’immunisation contre l’influenza du Québec PIIQ) offers the vaccine free of charge to people most at risk of suffering complications from this infection, as well as to those who have regular contact with them. 

The groups of people eligible for free influenza vaccination have recently changed. The vaccine is now offered free of charge to:

  • People with certain chronic diseases (from the age of 6 months);
  • Pregnant women with certain chronic diseases, regardless of the stage of pregnancy (13 weeks or more);
  • Pregnant women in good health, during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of their pregnancy;
  • People aged 75 years and over;
  • People living under the same roof as children under 6 months or the people mentioned above (caregivers included);
  • Residents of long-term care accommodation centers (CHSLDs) and intermediate resources;
  • Health care workers, meaning anyone who provides health care or comes into close contact with people at high risk of complications. It is recommended that priority be given to vaccination efforts for those who provide direct care in hospitals and CHSLDs.

Therefore, influenza vaccination for the following groups of people is no longer recommended because they are no longer among the target groups:

  • Children aged 6 to 23 months in good health;
  • Healthy people aged of 60 to 74 years.

If anyone in the above two groups still wishes to obtain the vaccine, they must first consult this notice from the MSSS. If they still wish to receive the vaccine after that, they will be able to receive it free of charge. Please note, however, that their contacts (people living in the same household) aged 2 to 59 years and in good health, are not eligible for free vaccination.

Paid vaccines and vaccination in pharmacies

The CIUSS de la Capitale-Nationale does not offer any paid vaccines at its vaccination clinics.

Several pharmacies, however, do offer the vaccine for a fee. Ask your pharmacist for more information.

Important reminders for any flu vaccination appointment

  • Wear short-sleeved clothing to make vaccination easier.
  • Bring your health insurance card.
  • All vaccination sites are wheelchair accessible.
  • Wear a mask at all times at the vaccination sites.
  • Do not attend your vaccination appointment if you have symptoms related to COVID-19. For more details, contact Info-COVID or visit the Québec government's website on coronavirus disease.

Please note that our vaccination services by English-speaking personnel are no longer available. Services were successfully offered on November 20-21 (Hotel Universel), and November 24th (Club de Golf Lorette) from 9:00 to 4:00 pm.
