Can I get the flu vaccine at Children’s?
Patients staying in the hospital will get the flu vaccine during their stay if they are eligible. Ask your nurse if you have questions.
Patients with a clinic appointment may be able to get their vaccine during their clinic visit. Ask your Children’s provider. There may be a cost (see below). If you cannot get one in the clinic, you can come to the Flu Vaccine Room (see below) at the main campus in Seattle.
Patients unable to get a flu vaccination in the clinic and family members who live with patients can go to the Flu Vaccine Room (see below) at the main hospital campus in Seattle. There may be a cost (see below).
You can also talk with your family’s primary care provider about how to get the flu vaccine.
Do you have the nasal mist form of the flu vaccine?
We offer two “mercury-free” vaccines: One is an injection and the other is a nasal spray, when available, for those who meet the health and age requirements.
