Reduce Your Risk: Get Your Flu Shot

Getting a flu shot can help protect you, your family and friends, and our community. According to the CDC, “everyone 6 months or older should get a flu vaccine every season, with rare exceptions.”

Find out how to get a flu shot at a UVM Health Network location by viewing the chart below. You can also contact a pharmacy near you to request one. Many offer flu shots by appointment or walk-in.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic makes getting your flu shot more important than ever. Flu and COVID-19 have similar symptoms, and both can be serious enough to require hospitalization. Reducing your flu risk with a flu shot means one less thing to worry about. It also means you’re helping to reduce the burden on our health care system and workers who remain very busy responding to COVID-19.

It is safe to get your flu and COVID-19 vaccine (including booster shots) at the same time. Visit VaccineFinder.org to find nearby locations that offer COVID-19 vaccines. Because every location handles appointments differently, you will need to schedule your appointment directly with the location you choose.
