Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP) Survey Report

Ontario’s Provincial government passed a regulation in 2012 that allows Ontario pharmacists to be a part of Ontario’s Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP). This regulation allows trained pharmacists to administer the publicly funded influenza vaccine to Ontarians who are five years of age and older. Our Health Unit is responsible for inspecting the vaccine fridges that house the influenza vaccine during the season and dispensing the publicly funded influenza vaccine to the participating local pharmacists.
