Targeted clients

In the light of the recent recommendations of experts from the National Institute of Public Health in Quebec, the flu vaccination program is modified, and target groups of children from 6 to 23 months and adults from 60 to 74, in good health, have been withdrawn, because it is now believed that they have a low risk of complications. However, those who wish, can get a vaccine free of charge if they ask for it.

So the target clients of the flu vaccination program are:

  • people with certain chronic diseases from the age of 6 months;
  • pregnant women with some chronic diseases, regardless of the stage of pregnancy;
  • healthy pregnant women in the 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy;
  • people aged 75 and older;
  • relatives living under one roof and guardians of the above-mentioned persons and children under 6 months;
  • health care workers, in particular those who provide direct care to patients in hospitals and CHSLD.

The most effective way to protect against influenza

The CISSS staff at Montérégie West reminds us that vaccination is the best way to protect against seasonal flu. The campaign 2018-2019 began on November 1. Elderly and chronically ill patients who are not vaccinated are more at risk of complications, hospitalization and even death if they become infected with the virus. Therefore, it is important that these people arrange a meeting.
