Seasonal flu immunization clinics are scheduled this fall at Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores in Snohomish County.
The flu shots are available to anyone 10 and older for $25 apiece and no appointments for the Haggen Food & Pharmacy clinics are necessary. Medicare and most insurance companies can be billed if participants bring their Medicare or insurance card. Haggen stores in Marysville, Arlington and Lake Stevens also offer flu shots to walk-ins and people with appointments during pharmacy hours.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention () recommend a seasonal flu vaccination for anyone wishing to reduce the risk of becoming ill with influenza (flu) or transmitting the virus to others. Seasonal flu shots are particularly recommended for the following high-risk groups: children ages six months to 19 years old, people 50 and older, pregnant women, people who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, and people who live with or care for those who are at high risk for complications from the flu.
