Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership as we work together to respond to the immunization needs of our communities.

Influenza vaccine is available

  • Fraser Health has received additional influenza vaccine which is available for you to order now.
  • We heard from you that you needed more vaccine in your communities in the fall. This is an opportunity to get clients/patients vaccinated that you weren’t able to vaccinate before.

Influenza vaccine remains important for keeping our population healthy

  • Flu season typically runs from October to April and people can get vaccinated at any time during the season.
  • While influenza activity remains low compared to previous flu seasons, preventing influenza remains important, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Please discuss with your patients/clients the importance of getting the influenza vaccine.

Influsplit® Tetra vaccine

  • The new vaccine product received is called Influsplit® Tetra. It can be used for all age groups.
  • If you request influenza vaccine, you may receive Influsplit® Tetra depending on the supply available at your local Public Health Unit.
  • If you receive Influsplit® Tetra, resources and information on the vaccine will be provided with your order.

Limited supply of Fluad available

  • We have received a small amount of Fluad that can be ordered for use with individuals 65 years of age and older.
