Where to Get a Flu Shot on Mercer Island

There are a few places to get seasonal flu shots on the Island:

  • Walgreens and other pharmacies- it costs about $25 but some health plans won’t cover it.
  • MI Primary Care will do seasonal flu shots for all comers, patients of the center or not, on a walk-in basis with no appointment needed.
  • MI Pediatrics will give seasonal flu shots to kids in their practice.

I got my seasonal shot at Mercer Island Primary Care and they did a nice job- no hurt, no bruising, and I was in and out in 15 minutes.

As for swine flu, it’s not quite available yet. And if you’re not pregnant or between 6 months and 2 years old, you’re not getting one.

For some gratuitous infoporn, here’s a flu tracker map from flutracker.org.

Scary red! But notice how the data is a distorted by the size of each county?

Here’s some practical flu info from the city. Stay home if you get sick!
