Interested customers

Taking into account recent recommendations from experts from the Quebec National Public Health Institute, the flu vaccination program is changing, and target groups of 6 to 23 month old and 60 to 74 year old adults were withdrawn because they are now considered to have a low risk of complications. However, those who want can receive the vaccine free of charge if requested.

Thus, the clients targeted by the influenza vaccination program are as follows:

  • people with certain chronic diseases from the age of 6 months;
  • pregnant women with certain chronic diseases, regardless of the stage of pregnancy;
  • healthy pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy;
  • people aged 75 and over;
  • relatives living under the same roof and carers of the above mentioned persons and children under 6 months of age;
  • health workers, especially those providing direct assistance to patients in hospitals and CHSLD.

The most effective way to protect yourself from influenza

CISSS staff in Montérégie West reminds us that vaccination is the best way to protect against seasonal influenza. The 2018-2019 campaign started on November 1. Elderly and chronically ill patients who are not vaccinated are at greater risk of complications, hospitalization and even death if they contract the virus. It is therefore essential that these people make a scheduling.
