Flu vaccine clinics
One of the best ways to become a flu fighter is to vaccinate for stronger kids. The flu vaccine is 70 to 90 percent effective in preventing influenza. Due to ineffective results, infection prevention experts recommend no FluMist nasal spray this year – only flu shot. Fortunately, there are simple tactics that you can use to help reduce needle pain.
Children’s encourages everyone 6 months of age and older to get vaccinated against influenza. Children’s offers several ways for your child to get vaccinated, including our primary care clinics, locations throughout the state and school clinics provided through our partnership with Kohl’s Cares.
Flu shots are offered at all of our 12 primary care clinics throughout the Twin Cities. Find a location near you and schedule an appointment today.
