Stay healthy this season. Get your flu shot.

The flu spreads easily in offices, schools, and even grocery stores. Protect yourself and those around you by getting a flu shot as soon as it’s available. Getting vaccinated before December gives your body time to develop resistance before the flu becomes common.

Just walk in to any Kaiser Permanente medical office Monday through Friday beginning in October. Some locations are even open until 6 p.m. Visit our flu website or call our recorded flu hotline any time at 303-344-7600 or 1-866-868-7091 for medical office hours and details.

Flu shots will be available at no cost to Kaiser Permanente members.
