Flu shots now available for 2016-17 influenza season

Flu shots are now available for adults and children over the age of 6 months at our walk-in clinics in Olathe and Mission. The cost is $30 for a seasonal flu shot and $50 for the high dose flu shot for those age 65 and older. The nasal spray vaccine will not be offered this year as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has determined that it is not as effective as the standard flu shot. The recommendations for people with egg allergies have been updated too.
