Stay in peak health, Get a flu shot.
Protect yourself and your family this cold and flu season by making sure you get your flu shot.
Franciscan Flu Resource Center
Protect yourself and your family this cold and flu season by making sure you get your flu shot. We make it easy by offering flu shots at most of our primary care, women’s care and urgent care locations (most urgent care locations can only provide flu shots for patients 19 years of age or older). Whether you walk in or schedule an appointment, getting vaccinated can reduce the chance of fever, sore throat, muscle aches and other flu symptoms. And if you do contract the flu, your shot may help reduce the severity of the illness.
