Flu Prevention

Special Message:
Your health and safety is our top priority. To help stop the spread of COVID-19, all patients will have their temperature taken upon arrival for flu vaccine appointments. If a patient has a fever of 100.0 or higher, we will not be able to administer a flu vaccine and they will need to reschedule.

The best way to protect yourself and the rest of your family from the flu is to get vaccinated. Everyone over the age of six months can, and should, be vaccinated against the flu each year. Annual vaccination can help prevent the flu but also reduce symptoms and minimize the risk of hospitalization in those who contract the flu.

An appointment is required at all NorthShore Pharmacy Flu Clinics. To make an appointment, please schedule online or call your physician’s office. If you’d prefer to walk-in, visit one of our many Immediate Care Centers.

 

We are continuously adding more times and locations for flu vaccination. If you do not see availability at your preferred location or during a convenient date or time, please check back on NorthShoreConnect as scheduling availability is expanded regularly.

NorthShore Primary and Specialty Care Offices
Do you have an upcoming appointment with your doctor for some reason other than flu vaccination? Many NorthShore Primary and Specialty Care offices have a limited number of flu vaccines available for their patients. Ask your care team during your appointment if you can be vaccinated while you’re there.
