Patients and their caregivers may receive flu shots in the following ways:

1. At a well or sick visit (as appropriate)

2. At a sibling's well visit. Please call us in advance to let us know you'd like to add siblings so that we can safely manage the number of people in our office at one time.

3. At a flu shot clinic in our office on weekdays. Please make an appointment via your MyChart account. Note that we publish flu clinic times in MyChart 7-10 days in advance. If you don't see any available slots, please check back the next week for new availability. If you don't yet have a MyChart account, please call the office for an activation code.
