Getting an annual flu shot is a simple step to protecting your health.
You can retrieve your flu shot at your Primary Care Physician's office or contracting specialist's office, if offered. You will have no copayment if you are seen only for the immunizations and receive no other physician services.

NOTE: Those allergic to eggs should not receive the influenza (flu) vaccination. While the flu vaccination decreases chances of contacting flu-like viruses, they do not guarantee recipients of the shot will not get sick. The flu shot, however, will not give you the flu. Talk to your patients about the advantages and risks of the flu vaccination for their health condition.
