“Alberta has shown real leadership by protecting seniors against influenza. We congratulate them for meeting NACI standards in this area. Now the issue of ease of access to the vaccinations will come into play,” according to Laura Tamblyn Watts, CanAge President and CEO.
Starting in the 2021-2022 flu season, seniors in Alberta will be eligible for the quadrivalent vaccine (QIV-HD). Albertans 6 months of age to 64 years of age will continue to access the regular dose of the flu shot.
