It’s always important to get a flu vaccine. Flu is a dangerous disease. And with COVID-19 still with us, it continues to be important to protect yourself.
Our 2023 flu clinics have ended, but you can still get your vaccine.
- Get your vaccine at a retail pharmacy, like CVS or Walgreens.
- Attend a flu clinic in your community.
- Get the vaccine from your care provider.
About this year’s vaccine
The 2023–24 flu vaccine offered at MIT Health’s flu clinic is quadrivalent, protecting against two strains of influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) and two strains of influenza B.
Active flu strains are different each year, so even if you got a flu vaccine last year, you need to get this year’s vaccine. More information about this year’s vaccine is available from the CDC (Vaccine Information Statement) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (Massachusetts Immunization Information System).
