The flu is very contagious and spreads quickly and easily to other people. Babies, Elders, and people with chronic diseases can suffer severe complications from the flu.

The flu vaccine (flu shot) is your best protection against the flu. It can save lives by protecting you if you are exposed to the virus, preventing you from getting sick with the virus, and protecting people close to you because you are less likely to spread the virus. The flu shot is recommended in Canada for everyone 6 months and older.

Influenza (flu) is a contagious lung disease caused by the influenza virus. This is a different virus than the one that causes COVID-19.

If you feel sick – stay home!

Flu and colds share similar symptoms with COVID-19, making it difficult to tell them apart. If you have flu-like symptoms, it is important to stay at home and to contact your local CMC or call the COVID-19 Info-line.
