It's flu Sneezin' Get your shot today.
To avoid getting the flu, wash your hands often, avoid touching your face and stay out of crowds. But more important than ever this year, get your flu shot. It’s the best way to protect yourself and others. A flu shot provides many benefits, including keeping you from getting sick with flu and reducing the severity of your illness if you do get flu.
Where can I safely get a flu shot?
We understand the importance of protecting our community, and we are making every effort to safely and effectively provide vaccinations to those that are interested. We offer many safe and convenient options for anyone, even if you’ve never been a patient of ours before.
Before You Arrive
- When you come in for a flu shot, you need to wear a mask. We also recommend a short-sleeved shirt.
- We accept most insurance plans. Before you come in, please check with your insurance regarding coverage.
You do NOT need to have a provider at a location or be a patient at a Froedtert & MCW location to get your flu shot at any of these options.
Froedtert Pharmacy Locations
Froedtert Pharmacy locations allow walk-in flu and pneumonia shots. You do NOT have to have an established primary care provider or be an existing Froedtert & MCW patient to receive the vaccine with the pharmacies. Please note there are no vaccinations at the Mequon location.
Flu shots are billed by the retail pharmacy to your pharmacy insurance. Some insurances require patients to receive flu vaccinations through their medical provider. Please contact your insurance plan to determine where your flu shot will be covered by your insurance.
Flu shots are also available at our FastCare® locations. We encourage you to call or reserve a spot online. You may also arrive on a walk-in basis, and we will accommodate you as best we can pending other patients' appointments.
