Get your annual flu shot

For most people, getting the flu means getting sick – usually for about a week. But for some people, the flu can be deadly. In the US, the flu kills tens of thousands of people per year.

So protect yourself and your loved ones: get a flu shot so you don’t pass it on to people who are more vulnerable than you are.

Overview

You don’t need health insurance to get your flu shot. You can visit a Community Flu Clinic or a Health Center’s walk-in flu shot hours. Find one that’s convenient to where you live or work.

If you do have health insurance, you can visit a pharmacy that provides vaccines.

Who

If you don’t have health insurance, you must be ages 19 to 64 to get your flu shot at a Community Flu Clinic or Health Center.

If you do have health insurance, most pharmacies will give a flu shot to anybody over age 9.
