Flu Central Home
At Canada Post, the health and well-being of our people—and of all Canadians—is our primary concern. Given the scope of our operation, the work that we do and the number of people we contact daily, it is extremely important that we remain vigilant at all times and take every precaution possible to stay healthy and prevent the spread of the flu.
This website can help you to prepare for this year’s flu season and find out:
- How you can help prevent yourself from catching and spreading flu
- What to do if you or a member of your family or team gets sick
Protect yourself each year by getting the flu shot
Every year, Canada Post hosts on-site seasonal flu-vaccination clinics in workplaces of 50 or more employees (with some exceptions each year). The clinics, which are offered at no cost to Canada Post employees and on-site contractors, will run from around mid-October until the end of November.
Watch out for sign-up sheets or an online scheduler and posters in your location. Please sign up as soon as possible.
No on-site clinic at your location? No problem.
If there’s no clinic at your location or if you can’t make it to your on-site clinic, you can get the flu shot from your family doctor or other health-care provider. If you live in a province or territory where the vaccine is not provided free of charge, you can submit your receipt for your flu shot to your team leader and be reimbursed by Canada Post.
