Flu Vaccine Locations

More than 2,000 Bronx residents were admitted to Montefiore's hospitals with the flu last year. This year, Montefiore is expanding its collaboration with Walgreens and Duane Reade to make the best tool against flu, the vaccine, more accessible than ever.

Walgreens and Duane Reade pharmacists will administer flu shots at no cost to the community. Flu clinics are scheduled in October and November, with the goal of vaccinating more than 500 Bronx residents this season.

When you protect yourself with the flu vaccine, you also protect your family and your community—your shot counts.

A POPULATION HEALTH EXPERT'S TOP REASONS FOR GETTING THE FLU VACCINE

Amanda Parsons, MD, Montefiore, highlights how to keep your community safe from flu in U.S. News & World Report.


Top Tips to Combat Flu

Montefiore's Top Tips to Combat Flu:

  • Anyone spending time with other vulnerable individuals such as infants, people who are immune-compromised and people with chronic health conditions like asthma, congestive heart failure and diabetes should get a flu shot. 
  • It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that provide protection against the flu to develop in the body
  • 20 to 30 percent of people carrying the influenza virus have no symptoms, so you can actually spread the flu without experiencing symptoms! 
  • If you get the flu, it is important to stay home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours.
  • If you are caring for a vulnerable person and you or they are experiencing flu symptoms, call your primary care doctor immediately to see if the antiviral medication is right for you.
  • If you or someone in your family is experiencing warning signs like difficulty breathing, bluish skin color, dehydration, lethargy, dizziness, confusion or severe and persistent vomiting, please seek care immediately.
