Get your flu shot
HealthPartners Clinic patients
Flu shots are available for $45 but are often covered 100 percent, depending on your insurance.
There are many ways to get a flu shot:
- Request a flu shot be added at a regularly scheduled appointment
- Schedule a flu shot by calling our appointment center at 612-726-3329
- Walk into any HealthPartners Clinic at any time during flu season
- Get a flu shot during the evenings and weekends at all HealthPartners Urgent Care locations
HealthPartners health plan members
HealthPartners plan members can get a flu shot at any one of our clinic pharmacies or a retail pharmacy and have the claim billed electronically without paying up front. You can do this if you have a pharmacy benefit through HealthPartners, or if you have Medicaid. Medicare members can get the flu shot at the pharmacy as a Medicare Part B service. Most major pharmacy chains like CVS, Target and Walgreens offer the flu shot. Call your preferred location to make sure they offer the flu shot.
The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. Some children 6 months through 8 years of age require two doses of influenza vaccine. Children 6 months through 8 years getting vaccinated for the first time, and those who have only previously gotten one dose of vaccine, should get two doses of vaccine this season.
The CDC recommends against using FluMist during this flu season. This decision was based on data that showed that FluMist was not as effective as the flu shot. HealthPartners and Park Nicollet are following CDC’s recommendations and will not be offering FluMist this season.
