Flu Shot Clinic

ABOUT THE 2014 FREE FLU SHOT CAMPAIGN

The single best way for families to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each fall. Barnes-Jewish Hospital is offering free flu shots to those in our community ages 6-months and older, unless otherwise noted.

All vaccines are free of latex and preservatives.

Free seasonal flu shots are available at the following locations and no pre-registration is required. All doses will be administered on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.

The Barnes-Jewish Hospital free flu shot clinics are made possible by funding from the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

For more information, call 314-TOP-DOCS or toll-free 866-867-3627. 

If you don't make it to one of our flu shot clinic locations this year and you are in need of a flu shot, please contact your health care provider.


 

All locations offer flu shots for adults and children older than 6 months, unless otherwise noted.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT FLU SHOTS

WHO SHOULD HAVE A FLU SHOT?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the following adults be vaccinated each year:

  • People at high risk for complications from the flu.
  • People 65 years and older.
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities that house those with long-term illnesses.
  • Adults with chronic heart or lung conditions, including asthma.
  • Adults who needed regular medical care or were in a hospital during the previous year because of a metabolic disease (like diabetes), chronic kidney disease, or weakened immune system (including immune system problems caused by medicines or by infection with human immunodeficiency virus [HIV/AIDS]).
  • Women who will be pregnant during the influenza season.
  • People with any condition that can compromise respiratory function or the handling of respiratory secretions (that is, a condition that makes it hard to breathe or swallow, such as brain injury or disease, spinal cord injuries, seizure disorders, or other nerve or muscle disorders.)
  • People 50 to 64 years of age. Because nearly one-third of people 50 to 64 years of age in the United States have one or more medical conditions that place them at increased risk for serious flu complications, vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 50 to 64 years.
  • People who can transmit flu to others at high risk for complications. Any person in close contact with someone in a high-risk group (see above) should get vaccinated. This includes all health-care workers, household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of children 0 to 23 months of age, and close contacts of people 65 years and older.

CAN MY CHILD BE VACCINATED, TOO?

Children 6 months and older can receive a vaccine. Please note that some locations may not offer pediatric doses for children 6 to 36 months.

PEDIATRIC VACCINE INFORMATION:

Influenza vaccination is recommended for all children aged 6 months and older. All children 17 years & under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A grandparent can bring the child with a written consent from the parent.

If this is the first year your child is receiving the flu vaccine and he/she is under the age of 9 years or if your child is:

  • Between 6 months and 8 years and did not receive a dose of flu vaccine last year AND
  • Between 6 months and 8 years and did not receive a total of 2 or more doses of flu vaccine since July 1, 2010

A second follow-up vaccine is required four weeks after the first dose for maximum effectiveness. All children who did not receive a total of 2 or more doses of seasonal vaccine since July 1, 2010 require 2 doses in 2014-15. (Only the first dose will be given at these clinics; you will need to see your primary health care provider for the follow-up vaccine).

In addition, because the strains contained in the 2014-15 seasonal influenza vaccines are identical to those contained in the 2013-14 vaccines, only 1 dose is required for any child aged 6 months through 8 years who previously received 1 or more doses of 2013-14 seasonal influenza vaccine.

TYPE OF VACCINATIONS:

This year Barnes-Jewish Hospital will provide quadrivalent (4-strain) vaccinations, unless otherwise noted. The CDC recommends that all individuals are vaccinated, but does not make recommendations on any types. Simply that persons should be vaccinated with what is available.

OTHER FAQS:

  • FluMist, egg free (Flublok), high dose and intra-dermal vaccines will NOT be available.
  • The vaccine does NOT contain thimerosal, a preservative.
  • The vaccine does not contain latex or gelatin.
  • A flu shot will NOT be given if a person has had an allergic reaction in the past, egg allergy or ever had Gullian-Barre Syndrome.
  • A flu shot should NOT be given if a person currently has a fever or respiratory illness.
