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

Flu vaccinations 2014-2015


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 mid-October to mid-November:

  • 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.

For a listing of other facilities in Scottsdale/Phoenix offering flu shots, contact Community Information and Referral.


Flu vaccine is available beginning Sept. 29. To check availability, call the Flu Vaccine Information Hotline at 904-953-0301. This line will be updated as the vaccine supply status changes.

  • Primary care patients (Department of Family Medicine and Division of Community Internal Medicine) may receive the seasonal flu vaccine at their regularly scheduled visits.
