Flu Shots

Getting your flu shot is the single best way to protect yourself from seasonal flu. It lowers your risk of getting the flu by about half.

Flu shots are conveniently available through Inspira’s 11 urgent care centers that are open every day, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. No appointment is needed, and most insurance plans are accepted.

Who Should Get the Flu Vaccine?
  • Caregivers of children under 5
  • Healthcare workers
  • Healthy adults, especially those 65 years of age and older
  • Pregnant women
  • Those with asthma, heart disease, diabetes and/or a weakened immune system
Who Shouldn’t Get the Flu Vaccine?
  • Infants less than 6 months
  • Those allergic to chicken eggs or any vaccine ingredients
  • Those who have previously had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine
  • Those with a moderate or severe illness or fever

Getting a flu vaccine does not offer complete protection against contracting the flu but it does lower your chances and makes cases less severe if you do contract it. Even those vaccinated should still practice regular and proper hand-washing techniques and limit their contact with sick people.
