This fall, don't wait to vaccinate
ARC flu shot clinics begin Monday, September 18. As in recent years, we expect flu and additional respiratory viruses (COVID-19 and RSV) to spread simultaneously.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to recommend universal flu vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, particularly for those in high-risk groups. Read about additional vaccines becoming available to protect against the most prevalent respiratory viruses expected this season.
Because protection wanes toward the end of the flu season, September and October are the best times for most people to get vaccinated for full protection before a flu wave. Book your flu shot online at ARCflushot.com.
Coming soon: Changes to MyChart billing
Starting November 14, 2023, Austin Regional Clinic will enroll all ARC MyChart users in paperless billing for a more secure and convenient way to view and pay your bill.
After November 14, you will receive an app notification and email when there is a new statement available to view and pay online. You can still pay your bill online, by phone, or by mail.
Please make sure that your email is correct to ensure proper delivery of your statement emails. You can learn how to update your email address in ARC MyChart here.
If you prefer getting a paper bill, you can choose to opt out of paperless billing from your ARC MyChart account after November 14.
