Give it your BEST SHOT.

Protect yourself and your family from the flu

The flu is more serious than the common cold, so do everything you can to prevent it. A flu shot (or nasal spray for children) is the best protection. The vaccine is safe and won't give you the flu. It takes up to 10 days for flu vaccination to provide protection, so get your shot before flu season hits.

Flu shots will be available at no charge to our KP members when given at a Kaiser Permanente medical facility.

Who should get the flu shot?

The CDCKaiser Permanente is not responsible for the content or policies of external Internet sites. recommends all children 6 months and older and every adult get a flu vaccination each year.

Vaccination is especially important for:

  • people 50 years and older
  • children 6 months to 5 years old
  • women who are or will be pregnant during flu season
  • people with chronic medical conditions or weakened immune systems
  • people who live in nursing homes and other long-term care centers
  • health care workers
  • people who live with or care for anyone at high risk for flu-related complications

Why kids should get a flu shot

Children can spread the flu easily to adults and other children. Getting vaccinated also helps protect infants (who cannot receive a flu shot), pregnant women, the elderly, and people with chronic conditions.

Make sure your children get all recommended vaccinations on time. Check your child's immunization record.
