Protect yourself, your family and our community from the flu! This year, it’s more important than ever to get the flu vaccine. It helps everyone – including those who can’t get the flu vaccine – stay as healthy as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To ensure that we can keep everyone socially distanced in our waiting rooms, we are requiring appointments for flu shots this year.
A: Flu shots are covered by most insurance plans. Check with your insurer to understand if your flu shot is covered. If you don’t have insurance or it’s not covered, we offer self-pay options.
Where can I get a flu shot?
A:You make an appointment to get a flu shot at any HonorHealth primary care location. Flu shots are also available at local pharmacies or through the health department. You may want to check with your employer to see if they are offering them this year.
Who should get a flu shot?
A:The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu shot every year. There are some exceptions, like those who have life-threatening allergies to the flu vaccine or certain health conditions. Talk to your HonorHealth provider if you have any questions about the flu vaccine.
Will a flu shot prevent me from getting COVID-19?
A:The flu shot won't prevent you from getting COVID-19. However, it will help protect you from getting COVID-19 and the flu at the same time. If there are fewer cases of the flu, it will also help reduce the strain on our healthcare workers and facilities.
When should I get the flu vaccine?
A:Early fall (right now!) is the best time to get a flu shot. You should get a flu vaccine before flu viruses begin spreading in our community, since it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to protect you against the flu.
