Flu Shots Now Available

8/22/2017 - written by Perlman Clinic

Every flu season is different; the flu vaccines change each year to combat the ever-changing strains of the virus. Flu viruses circulate at a significantly higher level during the months of August through May. Our flu vaccines are available in all of our clinics (La Jolla, Hillcrest, Clairemont, and Kensington) starting today, August 22, 2017.

Scheduling: Feel free to walk into any of our locations anytime or if you prefer to schedule by phone, please call 858.554.1212. Appointments are not required!

Cost: Generally, insurance plans cover the entire cost of the vaccinations. You can always call your specific insurance plan to ensure the cost is covered. If you do not have insurance, our self-pay price is $45.00 for a low dose or $60.00 for a high dose.

Why?: A few good reasons to get the flu shot are..
-Save money on sick days; Approximately 111 million working days are lost to flu every year.
-Avoid more severe health issues; influenza can last up to two weeks, in severe cases may even lead to death, the flu shot is linked to a decrease in the likelihood of heart attacks
-Protect your friends and family; the flu virus is very contagious and spreads quickly
