If you were unable to come to a clinic in your location, or would like to get vaccinations for the rest of your family, Smith’s Pharmacies are available. Be prepared to sign a release and show your prescription benefits card.

A flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with the flu and spreading it to others. When more people receive the flu vaccine, less flu viruses can spread through the community.  You can help protect the students at your school, your coworkers, and your family against the flu by getting your flu shot today.

Did you know?

  • Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and pass it on to others.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates between 140,000 to 710,000 flu-related hospitalizations and between 12,000 and 56,000 flu-related deaths occur annually.
  • Receiving your flu shot before the virus circulates helps you to be protected at the peak of the season.
