Do I need a flu vaccine every year?

Yes. Flu viruses can change and the vaccine gets updated. Your immune protection from a flu shot also decreases over time. A yearly flu shot renews your protection.

When is the best time to get a flu shot?

The CDC recommends you get your flu vaccine by the end of October. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop antibodies that protect against flu. 

Is it too late to get vaccinated in November?

If you miss it in October, there's still time to get vaccinated. Flu typically peaks between December and March, but it can spread anytime between late September through May. So come get your flu shot -- the sooner the better!

How much does the flu shot cost?

Most insurance plans fully cover the cost of a flu vaccine. If you have insurance, we are required by contract to bill it.

If you do not have insurance, the price is $38. The self-pay cost for the high-dose flu vaccine, typically recommended for people ages 65 and over, is $115.

Do I need to make an appointment to get a flu shot?

No, you are welcome to walk in to an Indigo near you any day between 8 am and 8 pm to get your flu shot. 

Can I get the flu from a flu shot?

No. Flu vaccines are made from an inactivated virus. Some people may experience mild side effects, like soreness at the injection site, a low-grade fever or body aches that last a day or two, but the vaccine does not cause the flu. 

Will the flu vaccine protect me from getting COVID-19?

No, a flu vaccine will not protect you against  COVID-19. Influenza and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses with some similar symptoms, but they are caused by two separate viruses.
