Flu

Influenza, also known as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness that is caused by the influenza virus. Those who are infected with the virus may experience a fever, cough, muscle or body aches, and a sore throat. The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot. Our pharmacists make it their priority to ensure our flu shots are fast, easy and convenient. Choose to make an appointment, walk-in at your convenience, or let us come to you via our on-site flu clinic.

Walk-ins Always Welcome

If you prefer, you can schedule an appointment for your flu shot using our convenient online appointment scheduler.

 

SEASONAL FLU ACTIVITY

The flu can begin as early as October
and continue through as late as May.

 

FLU FACTS

FLU SHOT CAN HELP ALL

It’s not just you who benefits from a flu
shot. It’s your family, friends and
co-workers as well.

 

 

FLU VIRUS LIFESPAN

Flu viruses live up to 48 hours on hard,
non-porous surfaces such as stainless steel
and up to 12 hours on cloth and tissues.

 

ABOUT YOUR VISIT

Make an appointment to get your flu shot by calling your pharmacist or using our online appointment scheduler. Or if you prefer, walk-in when it’s convenient for you. Either way, we’ll make sure you’re quickly cared for and on your way.

Once you’ve arrive in-store, check in at the pharmacy counter. We’ll have some brief paperwork for you to fill out, including information about your insurance, before meeting with our pharmacist. The vaccination itself only takes about five minutes.

For an even faster appointment, download our flu form now and fill it out before your visit.

DOWNLOAD FORM

Save time by downloading and filling out our Vaccine Consent and Release Form prior to
your visit. Please bring this form with you when
you come to get a flu shot at one of our 67
Bartell locations.

VACCINE UPDATED YEARLY

Flu viruses are constantly changing, so it’s not unusual for new flu viruses to appear
Every year, the vaccine is updated to better
match the circulating virus.

Most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.
- The Center for Disease Control (CDC)

The CDC recommends annual flu shots for
everyone six months of age and older.

Bartell’s pharmacists can immunize children 3 years of age and older.

People may be at higher risk of developing pneumonia or other serious complications if they get sick with the flu.
This includes:

  • Children less than 5 years old
  • Adults 65 years and older
  • Pregnant women
  • People with other medical conditions, such as asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, and diabetes.
