Vaccination is the best defense against getting the flu. Following is information about flu vaccinations for the public at Mayo Clinic.

Flu vaccinations 2015-2016


Seasonal flu shots are available by appointment for registered Mayo Clinic patients. Pediatric patients should be scheduled with their primary care doctor. Adult patients can schedule a flu shot either through their primary care doctor or through a special flu clinic.

Adult flu clinic locations, from October 12th through October 30th:

  • Acute Illness in the Mayo Clinic Building in Scottsdale
  • Mayo Clinic-Thunderbird
  • Mayo Clinic-Arrowhead

Patients are encouraged to schedule their flu shot ahead of time. Walk-in appointments are not available, nor are flu shots for anyone who is not a registered patient. The flu vaccination cannot be given at the same time as other vaccinations.
