Did you know?
The cost of seasonal influenza vaccine is covered by some insurance plans. We will bill your insurance or accept payment.
Children six months through eight years need two flu vaccines if it’s the child’s first seasonal flu vaccination. The second vaccine is given at least four weeks from the date of the first.
After getting vaccinated, it takes about two weeks to develop antibodies to protect against influenza. That’s why getting vaccinated early in the fall is recommended. If you are sick, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading illness to others.
