Your go-to source for immunizations
You and your loved ones should receive the flu shot once a year, right before the start of flu season. The shot typically takes two weeks to become effective, which is important to keep in mind when trying to decide when to receive your vaccine. Though it is not 100 percent effective against the virus and can help your body fight the bug and therefore, alleviate symptoms. It can also protect against common complications of the flu, such as pneumonia.
In addition to the annual flu shot, children and adults alike can and should receive many other immunizations. MMR protects against measles, mumps and rubella, Tdap protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis and IPV protects against polio. HPV protects against the human papillomavirus, which causes many types of cancer, and meningococcal vaccines protect against meningitis. Most individuals should get these shots when they're school aged, but anyone can get them at any time.
We happily accept most insurance types
Though you do not need insurance to visit our MinuteClinic®, we do accept most insurance plans. However, you can double check with your provider to see if your plan covers services we offer, or you can call our clinic and inquire with a technician.

About the Flu (Influenza)
Influenza is an infectious respiratory disease. Generally, the flu may resolve on its own. However, if the flu goes untreated, you may be at risk for complications that can be life-threatening. Those that might be at a higher risk of severe flu complications include children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women, and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems. If you fall into any of these categories, it is essential that you take strides towards flu prevention by getting your flu shot at MinuteClinic. The flu shot works by exposing you to an inactive flu virus and the flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body after vaccination. These antibodies will help to protect you if you are exposed to the flu virus. Essentially, getting a flu shot prepares your body to fight the flu.
Why Get A Flu Shot?
Getting vaccinated helps to protect you and the people around you. Influenza sends a countless number of patients into hospitals each year – don’t be one of them. There are two types of flu shots – a seasonal vaccine for adults and children (preservative-free available, upon request) and a high dose vaccine (for ages 65+). While you can take preventative measures, getting immunized with the influenza vaccine is your best defense against the flu. Each year, new strains of the flu develop. While you may have gotten a flu shot in the past, you may not be protected from the new strands. Although flu vaccines may not be 100% effective, it is still the best defense against the virus. Don’t fall victim to the flu this year – stop by MinuteClinic and get your flu shot today!
