Get the flu shot, not the flu!


Influenza is a common respiratory illness affecting millions of Canadians each year. When you get the flu, it’s more than your own health that is at risk. You risk transmitting the flu to your friends, family and co-workers.  A flu vaccine is your best way to prevent the flu!

Active McGill staff who are under age 65 and who are members of the University’s health and/or dental plans and their eligible dependents, who are also under age 65 and who are covered under their plans, can receive the flu vaccine free of charge at the downtown Medisys clinic, and at a one-day walk-in clinic at Macdonald campus on November 29, 2016.
