All Ages Welcome

Even healthy people can get the flu.

Protect yourself.

  • Bring your insurance card. Adults should wear a short sleeve shirt.
  • Please wear a mask and practice social distancing while you wait.

Who should get a flu shot?

Anyone 6 months and older, unless your doctor has specifically recommended that you not get a flu shot because of a prior, rare, severe reaction, says Dr. Lisa Grohskopf, a medical officer in the influenza division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

When’s the best time to get the flu shot?

Why not now?

Flu season starts in October in the U.S. While there’s some concern that immunity might wane before the end of flu season in May if you get the vaccine too early, there’s not enough data to know the optimal time to get the shot, Grohskopf says.
