It’s Not Too Late To Get Your Flu Shot

It’s Not Too Late To Get Your Flu Shot

January 11, 2018

It’s not too late though. Flu shots can be given through the end of February. There is still time for Nevadans to protect themselves and those around them – especially the elderly and young children who are more susceptible.  Sooner is always better than later as it takes two weeks to build up full immunity following vaccination.

Walgreens has released its 2017-2018 Flu Index™, a weekly report of state- and market-specific flu activity data that shows geographies experiencing the highest incidences of influenza across the country.  For more information, visit

This is the fifth year that Walgreens is giving customers an opportunity to give back when getting their flu shot.  The  Get a Shot, Give a Shot campaign strives to keep Americans protected against the flu while providing life-saving vaccines to children in need around the globe.  For every vaccination administered at Walgreens pharmacies, Healthcare Clinics or Duane Reade pharmacies, Walgreens donates the value of a life-saving vaccine to a child in need through the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign.

Additionally, Walgreens offers:

  • Convenience: Walgreens offers flu shots (and a broad range of CDC-recommended vaccines) whenever it’s most convenient for our customers and patients.
  • Flexibility: Flu shots are available during pharmacy hours at any Walgreens pharmacy, seven days a week—no appointment necessary. 
  • Availability: Flu shots are also available during all pharmacy hours at all Walgreens, Duane Reade pharmacies in New York, and also at our Healthcare Clinic locations.
  • Affordability: Under the Affordable Care Act, health plans are required to cover flu shots as well as number of other vaccinations
