Reminder: FluMist & Flu Shots Available Now

If you haven’t received the influenza vaccine this year, you can still receive either the flu shot or FluMist at the Atlantic Medical Center. Influenza vaccines are available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 to 4:30 pm and Saturday from 8:30 to 11:30 am. There is no need to make an appointment, and most insurance providers cover the cost of the vaccine.

The two best ways to protect yourself and those around you from influenza are to get vaccinated and to practice good hand washing. Getting vaccinated not only protects you, but also those around you who may be too young (under 6 months) or have a medical condition that prevents them from being vaccinated.
