Flu Vaccines

How to get the flu shot

To protect patient health and safety, Vancouver Clinic is offering different options for receiving the flu shot this year:

  • Get the flu shot as part of any primary or specialty care visit. Just ask your provider during your appointment.

Why protect against the flu

Getting the flu vaccine is one of the best ways to avoid falling ill. It is particularly important for infants, children, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with compromised immune systems because they are at higher risk during flu season. If you are part of this group, or care for those who are, it’s essential to get vaccinated.
