TORONTO — Free flu shots are now available for anyone in Ontario aged six months and older.
The province is also encouraging COVID-19 booster shots.
Health Minister Sylvia Jones wants Ontarians to get those shots as soon as possible.
She says getting both flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time is safe.
The province says the flu shots are available at doctor's and nurse practitioner's offices, through some public health units and at participating pharmacies.
Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore says it is difficult to predict the severity of the upcoming flu season, but he has warned of a difficult winter ahead due to the resurgence of respiratory viruses.
