Oct 30, 2023

Waterloo pharmacist Erin McClure says her phone has been ringing off the hook lately with people hoping to make appointments for their flu and COVID-19 shots.

As of Monday, anyone over the age of six months is eligible to get their next COVID-19 shot and flu shot. Appointments can be booked with local pharmacies, through public health or with family doctors.

McClure, who works at the Pharmasave Waterloo Wellness Pharmacy, said people are calling to make sure the pharmacy has the latest COVID-19 vaccine.

“Fortunately we did just get a lot of those. So that’s exciting to be able to say yes and get those into arms,” McClure said, adding people can get the flu shot at the same time as their latest COVID-19 shot.

“It’s very convenient that way. Most people are doing that.”
