Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP)

Thanks to your enthusiasm and commitment, Ontario pharmacists are playing an increasingly significant role in helping to protect the public from influenza though the Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP). 

In 2018, more than 1.2 million Ontarians received their flu shot from their pharmacist.

For this year's 2019-20 flu season, there are more than 2,900 pharmacies participating in the UIIP program.

This positive uptake signals that Ontario pharmacists are embracing the expanded scope of practice, and that the public is ready to turn to pharmacists for a range of healthcare services — all of which is a tremendous boost to our profession.

Important resources

For this season's application form and other tools specific to administering the program, please visit our UIIP Tools and Forms page. There you will also find posters and brochures to download and print to help promote your flu shot campaign.
