FAQs Regarding Flu Shots

Do I need an appointment for flu shots?  
Yes, all office locations require an appointment to be booked, we are not accepting walk-in appointments for vaccines.
*If a child already has an appointment at any office scheduled for October, you do not need to book a nurse visit
appointment, each office will administer flu shots during the well check and other appointments to the patient, any
siblings, or parents. Just let the office staff know you would like to add siblings and parents to the visit when doing your
verbal confirmation and screening call 1-2 days prior to the well check appointment.*

Do you or your child have an egg allergy?  
Please let the office scheduling staff know when booking your appointment, as egg allergy patients need to be
monitored after receiving the flu shot, so those patients will be scheduled at a different time.  

Will flu shots be given outside or inside the clinic? 
At this time, we will be doing flu shots inside the offices. We have certain exam rooms designated for flu shots and are utilizing waiting room temporary exam rooms in Austin and Cedar Park offices. If you do not feel comfortable bringing your family inside the office, we still want you to get your flu shot, please ask the office staff for other arrangements and we can accommodate an outdoor/walk-up flu shot appointment if needed.  

Requirements for flu shot visit:

  • 6 months and older
  • Ages 2 and above must wear a mask when entering the office and keep mask on during visit.
  • You cannot receive a flu shot if you are running fever, *DO NOT COME* into the office at all if you or your immediate family is running fever, please call to reschedule the appointment.  

How much are flu shots? 
We will file insurance for parents and patients, self-pay/underinsured flu shots are $30.00 until offices receive their TVFC flu vaccine stock, which then self-pay patients would be $13.75. 

Will I get a reminder for my flu shot appointment?Our EMR system will send out an automated message 5 days prior to your appointment, either voice phone call, text message, or portal message depending on how the parent has set up their confirmation reminder options.  

Does my child require 2 doses of flu vaccine?  
If your child has never received the flu shot before, is 6 months to 8 years old, then they do require 2 doses to be given at least 30 days apart during the current flu season.  

Does my child need a flu shot if they have had COVID or someone in the family has been exposed to or tested positive for COVID? 
Yes! If there is no active fever and past the 10-day isolation timeline, please get immunized for influenza this season! If you have further clinical questions, call the office and leave a message for your provider to go over the information with you.   

What if the date I wanted to come in and get a flu shot is already booked?  
We have weekly clinics at each location scheduled and will accommodate your needs as best as possible. If the clinics in all 3 office locations are already booked for this week, we will then attempt to open more options up to book flu shots for. We are extremely short-staffed at the moment and working with what we have available to offer, so please have patience with us! We also depend on shipments to come as scheduled from flu manufacturers and if we do not get shipments in as scheduled, at times, we do have to cancel and wait until shipments are received.
