Flu shots are coming!

Hold the phone … you’ll soon be able to book your flu shot online for flu clinics beginning in mid-September at ARC primary care locations.

Please be patient, we’ll let you know right here as soon as you can book your appointment. Watch our website and social media channels for updates.

This year, it is especially important to get the flu shot, as it is likely flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will be spreading 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.

Limited drive-up flu shots coming

Due to the need to staff COVID testing and vaccination site, drive-up flu vaccinations will be limited. When drive-up clinics are scheduled, we can administer flu and COVID vaccinations simultaneously if requested.

Four types of flu shots available

ARC will offer quadrivalent flu vaccine in four forms, including the regular flu shot, preservative-free flu shot, high-dose Flublok flu shot (for 50 years and older), and FluMist®, ask your physician which one is best for you.
