- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing
- Use soap and warm water, wash your hands thoroughly and often
- Stay home when sick
This seasonal flu vaccine is provided free of charge at Alberta Health Services immunization clinics. Your local immunization clinics schedules are available here.
