Flu shots for 2021-2022 flu season

Scripps offers adult and pediatric flu vaccinations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the annual flu vaccination for everyone older than 6 months, with rare exceptions. The vaccination is especially important for pregnant women, adults older than 50 and anyone with a chronic medical condition. 


At this point in the flu season, flu shots are available for Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center patients at their primary care doctor’s office. Call your primary care doctor’s office to schedule an appointment. 


Please note: At the start of flu season every year, Scripps also offers convenient “flu clinics” to help meet high demand for flu shots in San Diego. Dates will range from September through December. Appointments are required. Check this page each flu season for flu clinic dates.
