Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP)

Fee-For-Service Providers and Family Health Teams:

This information applies to all health care providers that administer publicly funded influenza vaccine and bill the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) for this service or who are paid by the province through means other than reimbursement directly through the UIIP. Health care providers who do not bill OHIP or are not already paid through some other provincial funding source should refer to the section for UIIP prequalified organizations (e.g., health care agencies and other organization) for information on hosting reimbursable or non-reimbursable influenza immunization clinics.

As in previous years, the receipt of vaccine in the province begins in late September and during October. You will be notified by your vaccine supply source (i.e., local public health unit or OGPMSS) when the vaccine is available.
