BJC HealthCare again offers free flu shots to St. Louis community


September 12, 2022
September 12, 2022

Getting a flu shot is important every year — but this year experts are predicting an especially severe flu season compared to recent years.

For the 19th year, thanks to funding from the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital, free flu shots will be available in the St. Louis area for residents 6 months and older. Health insurance is not required to receive a flu shot.

To avoid crowds and create a safe environment, the shots will be delivered at several locations by appointment. Safety precautions will include mandatory masking and social distancing. All vaccines are free of latex and preservatives. Those age 65 and older are eligible to receive a high dose (HD) vaccine while supplies last. If the HD vaccine is not available, they can receive a standard dose.

“By getting a flu shot, you are helping to protect yourself and the people around you from flu this season,” says John Lynch, MD, president of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “We continue to hear questions about the relationship between the COVID-19 vaccine and flu shot. Your flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine can be received in any order, with no need to space them apart. Most importantly, get both.”

The Christian Hospital Foundation is joining BJC’s efforts to help protect the community against flu this fall by funding the free flu shots at Northwest HealthCare.

In addition to the flu clinics at BJC HealthCare facilities, BJC is proud to collaborate with the St. Louis Blues to provide free flu shots during the team’s preseason games on Thursday, Sept. 29, and Tuesday, Oct. 4. Vaccination will be available in the Enterprise Center concourse, so a game ticket is required for entry. No appointments are required.
