Flu vaccines are available at all our offices. Please call your provider to schedule your appointment now — the sooner you get the vaccine, the greater the benefit to your health.

The vaccine is available for both insured and self pay patients. If you are a self pay patient, we offer the flu vaccine for a $40 flat fee.

Why do flu vaccines matter?

Flu vaccines offer many benefits:

  • The flu vaccine protects you — and those close to you — from risk of infection and illness. This is especially true for families with small babies (under 6 months), immune compromised family, and elderly family members with whom you have frequent contact.
  • The flu vaccine may also may make your illness milder if you do get sick (Belshe, 1998).
  • Getting the flu vaccine can reduce your risk of serious complications from the flu that result in hospitalizations and deaths. For children the risk is reduced by about 74% and for adults the risk is reduced from 61-77% depending on age and other health conditions.

If you have questions or concerns, please ask your provider if the flu vaccine is right for you.

Thank you for partnering with us for better health.
