Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood Urges All Ontarians to Get the Flu Shot

Protect yourself and protect our community

Flu season is upon us and the 2013-2014 Ontario flu vaccination campaign in in full effect. More than 4,000 pharmacists in Ontario are now certified to administer the flu shot so it is easier than ever to protect yourself and our community.

Influenza, commonly known as "the flu," is a serious, acute respiratory illness that can lead to pneumonia. It is caused by a virus.

Immunization helps strengthen your body's natural immune response against the flu. The flu shot stimulates your immune system to build antibodies against the virus, making it stronger and ready to fight off the flu.
