Flu: Immunizations


The best way to prevent the flu – and to protect those around you – is by getting the influenza vaccine (PDF). Everyone 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine each year.

At Park Nicollet, we want to help you and your family stay healthy and active during flu season, which can begin as early as September and last as late as May. Get your flu vaccine now and be protected for the 2015-2016 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 Fluzone high-dose (PDF).

Each season, the flu vaccine is formulated to protect against the strains of influenza viruses most likely to cause the flu 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 the flu vaccine. If you have health insurance, your plan will be billed. If your 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 the flu vaccine free at Park Nicollet through this program. Adults without health insurance who get the flu vaccine at Park Nicollet will receive a billing statement.
