Starting this season, older people in New Brunswick will be able to get the recommended high-dose flu shot, free of charge!
The province is the most recent in a small but growing number that are stepping up to fund specifically-formulated flu shots for adults 65+.
This is great news for New Brunswick’s older population following on the heels of our advocacy on this important issue, which kicked off with last year’s Vaccine Report Card. We gave the province a low score of D- on their immunization efforts for adults. This move will improve their score next time around.
Watch out for an updated version of our Vaccine Report Card, coming soon!
