Everyone over the age of 6 months should get a flu shot every year. Flu vaccines are especially important for those younger than 5 years, older than 65 years, pregnant women, and anyone who has asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, kidney and liver disorders.

If you already have an in-person appointment scheduled with your primary care provider, we’ll offer you the flu shot while you’re here.

Patients can make an appointment for a flu shot at their clinic. Please call your clinic today to make an appointment. Or, you can attend one of the vaccine clinics listed below.

Why Should I Get a Flu Shot Every Year?

Every year the flu virus changes so the vaccine changes too. This is why getting your flu shot every year offers better protection. Getting a flu shot will lessen the effects of the flu if you get it and minimize your chances of getting seriously ill and being hospitalized.
