Flu Vaccines

Who Should Be Vaccinated?

Everyone 6 months and older in the United States should get an influenza (flu) vaccine every season with rare exception. CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has made this “universal” recommendation since the 2010-2011 flu season.

Vaccination to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications is particularly important for people who are at higher risk of developing serious flu complications. A full list of age and health factors that confer increased risk is available at People at Higher Risk of Developing Flu-Related Complications.

More information is available at Who Needs a Flu Vaccine.

Fluzone Quadrivalent flu vaccines are free to everyone.

Fluzone High Dose flu shots for ages 65+ are covered by insurance.


Please call the clinic for an appointment for either one or both vaccines (310) 510-0096. Both vaccines can be given at the same time.
