Pharmacists play a vital public health role, administering more than half of all flu shots delivered across Canada each year.


The Canadian Pharmacists Association (CPhA) is working closely with governments, stakeholders and our provincial association partners to help pharmacists prepare for the 2022/2023 influenza season.
