Flu: Immunizations

 

The best way to prevent influenza–and to protect those around you–is by getting the influenza vaccine. Everyone 6 months and older should be vaccinated against influenza each year.

At Park Nicollet, we want to help you and your family stay healthy and active during influenza season, which can begin as early as September and last as late as May. Get your influenza vaccine now and be protected for the 2014-2015 season.

Park Nicollet offers convenient family appointments at 20 clinic locations. Unlike retail pharmacies, we can immunize the entire family, including children as young as 6 months. We also offer:

  • FluMist for healthy individuals (and nonpregnant women), from 2 through 49 years old
  • Fluzone high-dose for people 65 years and older

Each season, the influenza vaccine is formulated to protect against the strains of influenza viruses most likely to cause influenza during the upcoming season. If you have questions about which influenza vaccine is best for you, talk to your doctor.

Pricing and insurance
Most health insurance plans cover influenza vaccine. If you have health insurance, your plan will be billed. If you plan does not pay (in full) for the vaccine, you will receive a billing statement from Park Nicollet.

Park Nicollet participates in the Minnesota Vaccines for Children program. Children who do not have health insurance receive influenza vaccine free at Park Nicollet through this program.

Adults without health insurance who get the influenza vaccine at Park Nicollet will receive a billing statement.
