Capital Medical Clinic will be offering a walk-in flu shot clinic starting 09/09/2019. Hours: 8:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:00pm Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary. Please check in at the Front desk (Suite #601)and take your pink routing ticket to the Flu shot clinic. Parking will be validated for those patients coming in for flu shot only. If you are here for a lab appt or office visit, you can get the flu shot during your visit.
For 2019/2020 flu season, we will be offering 3 types of flu vaccine:
Quadrivalent: Protects against 4 strains (2A, 2B) and is indicated for ages 18-49.
Flublok: Protects against 4 strains (2A,2B) and has 3 x the antigen and recommended for ages 50-64. It does NOT contain any egg protein.
High Dose: Protects against 3 strains (2A,1B) but has 4 x the antigen and recommended for ages 65 and older.
None of our flu vaccines contain latex or thimerosal (mercury) based preservative. They do not contain live virus;therefore, you cannot get the flu from the flu vaccine. However, some people may experience mild “flu like” symptoms following a flu shot that can last 1-2 days. It takes approximately 2 weeks to develop protection following vaccination. Flu is spread by coughing, sneezing and close contact. Best prevention is handwashing and a flu shot!
