During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people put off taking care of themselves. There are understandable reasons why, including being overwhelmed with work responsibilities, worrying about finances, juggling childcare and feeling afraid to seek non-emergency medical care during a pandemic. Beyond…
Stopping the spread is important, now more than ever. The flu can be dangerous and much more serious than the common cold. Getting a flu shot has always been your best way to stay safe and stop the spread. But this year, it might be essential.
This year, flu shots will look a little different in our facilities. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, you will need an appointment to get a flu shot.
Kaiser Permanente will offer appointments for 4 easy ways for you to get a flu shot:
|Drive-thru clinic||Medical center clinic||Walk-up clinic||Flu Saturdays||Outside retail pharmacies|
|This is a new, convenient way for you to get a flu shot. You don’t even have to leave your car. An appointment is required.||If you would like to get a flu shot in a medical center, you can schedule an appointment. Flu clinics are located in a designated room in each medical center.||You can schedule an appointment at one of our open-air tents located at a few facilities in the Baltimore area.||You can schedule an appointment at our Flu Saturday events which will be held outdoors every Saturday from September 12 through October 24 at select medical centers.||Between October 23 and March 31, 2021 you can receive a flu shot at participating retailers at no additional cost. Visit kp.org/flu to learn more.|
Like previous years, you will always be offered a flu shot at any primary or specialty care appointments.
You can schedule an appointment for a flu shot starting on August 28 for appointment dates starting on September 1. Visit kp.org and select the e-visit option to quickly and easily schedule your appointment or you can call the 24/7 appointments and advice line at 1-800-777-7904 (TTY 711). The best way to schedule an appointment for your family is to call 1-800-777-7904 (TTY 711) so we can book you an extended appointment.
