Influenza Immunization Awareness Campaign

The Influenza Immunization Awareness Campaign takes place each fall to encourage Canadians of all ages to get immunized against seasonal influenza (the “flu”).

Local, regional, provincial, territorial and national activities remind Canadians that immunization is the longest-lasting and most effective way to prevent influenza.
