The best way to treat the flu is to prevent the flu with a vaccine. The flu is caused by a virus that is spread person to person by droplets produced when individuals with the flu cough, talk, or sneeze. Symptoms of the flu may include cough, sore throat, tiredness, fever, body aches or a runny nose. Typical flu season in the United States is from October to May.

Why should I get a flu vaccine? 
The flu is a serious concern and can cause missed school or work days, hospitalization, and in the worst case, death. Not only can the flu vaccine help you stay healthy, but it also helps your family and friends stay healthy because it reduces the spread of the flu.

Where can I get my flu vaccine?
UofL Hospital’s two Outpatient Pharmacy locations will both be offering flu vaccines. No appointment or prescription necessary – anyone can come and receive one!

How much does it cost?
Flu shots are covered through most insurances and all Medicare Part B. For those without insurance, we offer the standard flu vaccine for $25, and the high dose vaccine for $50.

Please call either of our locations below with any questions.
