Influenza Vaccine

We have flu vaccine for all ages. Influenza vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months of age and over. We are administering the vaccine at appointments and during nurse visit hours. This year we are providing a new expanded four strain inactive influenza vaccine (one strain more than prior years). We also provide a special High Dose flu vaccine for those 65 and over. These are not live virus vaccines, so they can be given to almost everyone and cannot make you sick with the flu. Please keep in mind that many other viruses circulate in the fall, so illness after getting the flu shot is not surprising.
