The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months or older should get a flu vaccination. Recent studies show that people who get the flu shot have a stronger chance of being immune to the flu and are pivotal in preventing the spread of the flu. The cost of a flu shot is only $37 at any ProHealth location.
On-Site Flu Clinics

We may be able to file your company’s insurances for payment with a small on-site fee. Flu Clinics are available from September through January.
COVID -19 Information
A vaccination for COVID-19 doesn’t exist yet, but COVID-19 does affect the reason people should protect themselves from the flu this year. For the following reasons, getting a flu shot is especially important this year:
- Protect yourself, your loved ones, and others around you from a potentially deadly virus.
- Prevent contracting both COVID-19 and the flu at the same time.
- Help save medical resources for those suffering from COVID-19.
- Help with herd immunity: the more vaccinated people there are, the fewer outbreaks in flu season 2020.
- Help alleviate the burden that is already heavy upon our healthcare workers due to COVID-19.
ProHealth does offer COVID testing. For more information visit our COVID-19 Testing blog and see the options below.
Who needs a flu shot?
It’s especially important for people in high-risk groups to get the flu shot this year:
- Children aged 6 months to 5 years
- Adults 65 or older
- Healthcare providers
- Pregnant women
- Nursing home residents
- People at risk for COVID-19
Why get a flu shot?
Each year, there is a new flu shot created based on current research and prediction of the upcoming season. This means you will need a new vaccination each flu season to be immune. It is very important to receive a flu vaccine in Pensacola every year, preferably in the early fall.
Is there a risk?
Flu vaccines do not cause flu illness. Flu vaccines stimulate your body’s immune system into creating antibodies. These antibodies are developed via your body’s reaction to the flu vaccine. Your body creates these antibodies within 2-4 days of receiving the vaccination!
