Where to Get a Flu Shot in Royal Oak

Here are the costs and details for getting vaccinations in the area.

It's that time of year again: time to think about getting a flu shot.

“The best way to prevent flu, a respiratory infection that results in over 200,000 hospitalization and 10,000 deaths annually," said Dr. Jeffrey Band, director of Infectious Disease at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, "is receipt of the safe and effective flu vaccine.” 

This year, eight types of flu shots are approved in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published a table with details on each of the shots. Always consult your primary health care provider regarding the type of shot and dosage that may work best for you.

You can arrange to get a flu shot from your regular health care provider or at one of the following locations:
