This year's UHN Flu Campaign supported a global health and safety initiative, organized through UNICEF Canada.
every flu shot received by a UHN staff member throughout the Flu Campaign, we donated one essential vaccine to a child in a developing country.
every 50 flu shots received at UHN, we donated a five-month supply of clean water through 73 water purification tablets, to a child in need.

Can I still get my flu shot?
Yes. If you didn't receive your flu shot during the Flu Campaign, it is still available at all Occupational Health and Safety clinics across UHN until Thursday, Dec. 31.
Every year, one of the UHN hospitals is awarded the annual Flu Campaign trophy for having the highest participation rate. The participation rates will continue to be counted until Dec. 31. The annual Flu Campaign trophy is still up for grabs.
You can also still receive a full-sized chocolate bar while supplies last!
Why do I need to get the influenza vaccine?
Getting the flu vaccine is one part of a wellness strategy to keep you healthy this season. In addition to getting vaccinated, we encourage you to do the following:
Influenza is one of the top 10 infectious diseases in Ontario. While most healthy adults feel sick for a few days, for others, influenza can be serious or life-threatening. Those most at risk include adults age 65 and over, residents of long-term care facilities, pregnant women, children under the age of five, people who are immune-compromised and people with chronic medical conditions including asthma, heart disease, and diabetes, among others.
Thank you, UHN, for supporting our local and global communities, and for making every shot count.
