Here is where to get your flu shot
SPOKANE, Wash.– Flu season is almost here and that means it’s time for a flu shot.
Last year’s flu season was mild, which has health experts concerned that this year’s season could be bad.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends everyone six months and older get an influenza vaccine, adding that it is safe to get one on the same day as a COVID-19 vaccine.
Here are all the places you can head to get the jab:
Franklin Park Urgent Care Center
Spokane Regional Health District
Kaiser Permanente Riverfront Medical Center (appointment required)
Northwest Urgent Care
Coeur d’Alene Pediatrics
Heritage Health Street Medicine + Community Outreach
Panhandle Health District
Kootenai Urgent Care
Locations marked with * have varying hours and services. You should call ahead and make sure the shot is offered at that specific pharmacy.
Health experts say the flu shot is the best way to protect yourself from getting influenza. The vaccine does not protect you from COVID-19, colds or other viruses.
You can read more about the flu vaccine on the CDC’s website.
