Like eating healthy foods and getting enough sleep, getting an annual flu shot is something we all know we should do but sometimes don’t.
This year, with the nation still coping with COVID-19, it’s especially important to be prepared for flu season by getting vaccinated for both illnesses.
That’s why we’re doing everything we can to make it easy and convenient to get your flu shot. Through March 31, 2022, Kaiser Permanente members can get no-cost flu shots at select retail pharmacies across the United States, including Albertsons, Costco, CVS, Kroger, Rite Aid, Safeway, Sav-on, Walgreens, and Walmart. That’s in addition to the many flu shot locations at Kaiser Permanente. Visit kp.org/flu. to find options near you.
Here’s how to get your flu shot at a participating retail pharmacy:
It’s safe to get your flu shot even if you’ve just been vaccinated for COVID-19 or gotten a booster, and it’s safe to get the COVID-19 vaccination or a booster even if you just got the flu shot. No waiting period is needed.
If you haven’t been vaccinated for COVID-19 yet, ask the pharmacy staff if you can do so while you’re there for your flu shot. This is also an option at some Kaiser Permanente locations. Learn more at kp.org/flu.
