Get a flu shot and other vaccines at a Florida Blue Center

Flu shots and regular vaccinations are one of the most important ways to help protect you and your family this season. 

To make it a little easier to get up to date on your vaccinations, Florida Blue Centers around the state are offering a series of vaccination clinics. The clinics are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on certain Wednesdays (Oct. 27 and Nov. 3) and Saturdays (Oct. 16 and Nov. 13). Appointments are recommended and can be scheduled here. (See full list of locations below.)

Because regular vaccinations are one of the most important ways to protect you and your family, Florida Blue Centers are also offering the following vaccines: COVID-19 Pfizer* vaccine (including third doses for immunocompromised and boosters when available), pneumonia, shingles and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, which is also called whooping cough). Make flu season the time of year to get up to date on all your vaccinations.

And remember, you can’t get the flu from a flu shot. Check out this animated video to see why that’s true. If you have questions about vaccines, call (877) 352-5830 to speak to a Florida Blue Center nurse.

Rewards and zero extra cost

The Florida Blue Centers are offering flu shots at no extra cost, even if you are not a Florida Blue member. Many members can also earn up to $20 in rewards for getting their flu shot.**

If you are not near a Florida Blue Center, most Florida Blue members can get a flu shot at no extra cost at an in-network doctor or pharmacy. And some pharmacies, including Walgreens, Winn-Dixie and CVS, are offering additional rewards for getting a flu shot (check with your local pharmacy).

COVID-19 and the flu

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention strongly recommends getting both the flu and COVID-19 vaccines to protect yourself and others. This year, you can get the two vaccines at the same time. If you have questions about vaccines, call (877) 352-5830 to speak to a Florida Blue Center nurse.

With COVID-19 circulating in our communities and early cases of flu detected, it’s more important than ever to get your flu shot. The flu and COVID-19 have similar symptoms and may require testing to confirm which you have. Being ill may cause you to miss work and important life events.
