  • Question: When should I get a flu shot?


    The short answer is that the best time is when you can get one. But the ideal timing is typically early fall, before the end of October. This allows your body to develop immunity before the flu season is in full roar, which tends to peak from December through February. However, getting a flu shot later in the season can still be beneficial, as flu activity can trickle into the spring.

    Recommendations may vary based on your location, your overall health or other factors. It's always a good idea to consult with your primary provider to determine the best timing for your flu shot based on your circumstances.

  • Question: Why do I need to get a flu shot every year?


    The virus that causes influenza is always adapting, with new strains emerging annually. The flu vaccine is updated every year to target the specific strains expected to be in high circulation that upcoming season.

    Immunity from previous flu shots or illnesses wanes over time, so annual vaccination ensures the best protection. A yearly shot also reduces the risk of severe illness if you do get sick.

    Plus, when we all do our part and get an annual flu shot, we contribute to our community’s immunity, protecting vulnerable individuals.

  • Question: I’m pregnant. Should I still get a flu shot?


    Yes. Getting a flu shot during pregnancy is generally recommended and considered safe for both the pregnant person and the developing baby. Pregnant people are at an increased risk of severe illness and complications if they get sick, making it even more important to protect themselves and their babies by getting vaccinated.

  • Question: How much does a flu shot cost?


    At our AdventHealth Centra Care urgent care centers, it’s important to us that everyone can afford protection from the flu. That’s why our flu shots are only $30, and no insurance is necessary.

  • Question: Am I contagious after getting a flu shot?


    No, you are not contagious to others after receiving a flu shot. The flu vaccine is made from inactivated or weakened virus particles. These weakened virus particles cannot cause the flu, and they cannot replicate or cause infection in your body, which means they can’t make you contagious to others.
