How do I schedule an appointment?
Beginning September 1, 2021, here’s how you can schedule your flu vaccine appointment:
- Current enrollees can schedule a flu vaccine appointment through your MyChart account. To enroll in MyChart, you can sign up here.
- Call your primary care physician’s office – or your child’s pediatrician* – to schedule a flu vaccine appointment. If you already have an upcoming appointment scheduled with your primary care doctor, you can receive the flu shot then. Many specialists also offer the flu vaccine in their offices.
*Please note: The flu shot is recommended for those 6 months and older.
