Flu Shots for the Whole Family

Face this flu season feeling invincible! Life doesn’t stop when you get the flu. So, this year, be ready! Get flu vaccines for your whole family (while supplies last).

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a flu shot for the 2019-2020 season as soon as it is available (which is now!). Influenza is dangerous – much more dangerous than the common cold. It can lead to hospitalization, ICU admission or even death. In the 2018-2019 flu season, 116 kids died. Of those children, 70 percent did not receive that year’s flu vaccine, and 50 percent were healthy before they got the flu. That’s why getting the vaccine is so important.

Call your primary care provider today to schedule your flu vaccine. If you need to find a primary care provider, please call 913-791-4396, or click here.

Prices of flu vaccines vary by insurance provider. You can verify your flu vaccine cost by calling your insurance carrier at the number provided on the back of your insurance card.
