It’s Flu Vaccine Season!
Should I get a flu vaccine?
Yes! Everyone 6 months of age and older should get flu vaccine every year. Getting a flu vaccine helps protect you from getting the flu and prevents you from passing it to people who could get very sick.
Is it time to get a flu vaccine?
Yes! Once October arrives, it is time to get your annual flu shot. Remember, it takes approximately two weeks for the vaccine to reach full effectiveness.
Although anyone can potentially become very sick from the flu, the following groups are particularly susceptible:
- People age 65 and older
- Young children, especially those under 2 years old
- Pregnant women
- People with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease
- American Indian and Alaska Natives
Help protect people around you with your annual flu vaccine. Learn more about the flu from the Minnesota Department of Health.
The flu shot is provided at myHealth for free! There are three ways to get your vaccine at myHealth:
- Walk in during clinic hours
- Call 952-474-3251 to schedule your appointment
- Schedule an appointment online
Need a flu shot in a different part of Minnesota? The Minnesota Department of Health’s vaccine finder tool is here to help you.
What if I think I might have Covid-19?
What if I think I might have COVID-19?
If you have questions or concerns about your symptoms, please call and talk with your primary care provider. If you do not have a primary care provider call and talk with a nurse at myHealth For Teens & Young Adults (952) 474-3251. A nurse at myHealth is happy to talk with you about your symptoms and is able to schedule you for a virtual visit with a provider. Please do not walk into the clinic if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. We are not seeing sick clients on-site, and we are not able to test for COVID-19.
Where can I get tested for COVID?
Minnesota COVID testing locations
Protect yourself and others:
- Get a vaccine
- Wear a mask
- Physical distance
We are asking all clients to please wear a mask to their appointment even if they have had the vaccine.
Am I still able to get healthcare services at myHealth during the outbreak? YES!
We are offering video visits, in-person appointments, and walk-in visits to make it safe and easy for you to get the medical care you need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
A video visit is just like an office visit. You get the same personalized care, expert diagnosis, and a treatment plan tailored to you. The only difference is that you’re speaking with your doctor or clinician via video chat. And for our usual options, you will be asked screening questions to assure everyone’s safety.
We are providing care for all in need, even new clients for medical and mental health services. Call and schedule your appointment today. (952-474-3251)
Be well. Be safe.
