Flu Shot Supply Update

Updated: Nov 5



Unprecedented demand means there is a shortage of flu shot doses in Ontario. Our pharmacies are rescheduling most of this week's flu vaccine bookings as we wait for the Ontario Health Ministry to allocate additional supply.


The ministry has ordered 5.1 million doses across the province and sent 800,000 units to pharmacies to date (Oct 30, 2020). The Ontario Pharmacists Association says demand for the annual shot is up 500% at pharmacies.


We understand your frustration at having your flu shot delayed. We are frustrated, too. We are in contact with suppliers and are working to ensure more vaccine doses become available. Please check back here for supply updates. If your flu shot appointment needs to be rescheduled, your DrugSmart pharmacist will contact you.


Thank you for your understanding.
