Flu shots are available to Atlanta Allergy & Asthma patients at all 17 locations.
Although the influenza vaccine is recommended for most children and adults, it is especially important that our patients with asthma and chronic sinusitis receive their yearly flu shot. Patients between the ages of 6 months and 65 years should visit their Atlanta Allergy & Asthma office to receive the 2019/2020 influenza vaccine.
No appointment is necessary; however, you should be a current patient. Protection from the vaccine begins about two weeks after the injection and is thought to last for the influenza season.
*Please note that some insurance plans will not cover the influenza vaccine if received in our office. These plans include Medicaid, Kaiser, BlueChoice, HMO, or POS, and WellStar groups. You may prefer to visit your primary care practice for this year’s flu vaccine. Since there may be other plans that follow this policy, please check coverage of your specific insurance plan. If your insurance does not cover, and you receive the vaccine from Atlanta Allergy & Asthma, you will be required to pay the out-of-pocket expense.
