2021-2022 INFLUENZA (FLU) SEASON
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend vaccination against influenza for all individuals over the age of 6 months. This year, annual vaccination is especially important for those 50 years and older, people with chronic conditions that could put them at risk for severe complications from the flu, as well as their household contacts.
As of January 1, 2022, Atrius Health is no longer offering formal flu vaccination clinics but can still provide some options to receive a flu vaccination at Atrius Health.
As the flu vaccine is very important, Atrius Health encourages patients to take advantage of any convenient community option to get the flu vaccine this year. Most retail pharmacies (CVS, Walgreens) still offer flu shots on a walk-in or by-appointment basis.
