Did you know?

The cost of seasonal influenza vaccine is covered by some insurance plans. Mayo Clinic Health System will bill insurance or accept payment.
Children 6 months through 8 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.

People at high risk of developing serious complications from influenza include:

  • Those with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes and lung disease
  • Pregnant women
  • People 65 or older
  • People who live with or care for others at high risk of developing serious complications, including caregivers of young children and people with chronic medical conditions

Viruses in the influenza vaccine are inactive, so you cannot get influenza from the vaccine. 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.
