Getting a flu shot at Pharmaca

Flu shots, including traditional, high dose and nasal mist options, are available on a walk-in basis during flu season.

Who needs a flu shot?

Every flu season is different, and so are the vaccines developed each year. Since everyone is at risk for getting the flu, the CDC recommends flu shots as soon as the new vaccine is available, since it takes about two weeks from the date of vaccination for antibodies to develop against the flu.

The CDC especially recommends vaccination for those with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease; pregnant women; people 65 and older; or people who live with or care for others who are high risk of developing serious complications.
