No. We are contracted with Mollen Clinics. Nurses come in and do them.

I know that flu shots don't start working for two weeks so...what is up with them starting them in august? Don't they know that they are only good for 6 months! Sounds like some people are are a little money hungry! There are plenty of good places to get your flu shot at other then walmart!

They are a waste. The worst kind of gamble ever. I have worked in the medical field for 20 years. Good luck.

If I'm so informed, then give me what you think is the correct information!

Most people get their shots in October and November because of the higher risk, but you should get a flu shot as soon as its available. They have the ability to last until at least the spring of next year, if not longer. You should get it every year, because the vaccine itself is always slightly different.

Flu shots are only good for 6 months, I know this for a fact! Last year the flu went around real bad in march...so the vaccine was worn off by then if people got them in august!!

It's not about how long they last, rather about how well they work. There are many types of virus's, the shot only cures the most common. Good chance you get the shot and get sick when otherwise you wouldn't have.

So you get sick after you get the shot?Then why get the shot? Does the shot prevent it from being worse or somethin g or what?

Oh yes working at walmart you can hear it when customers are sick.when one is coughing , you'll have a bunch more.if some are sneezing then they'll all come in sneezing. Their symptoms come in packs when they come in to shop.

The shot does not make you sick. You simply get the symptoms as your system builds up an immunity. Do you not know how a vaccination works?

The symptoms are what makes being sick miserable. Why risk feeling bad for a small chance that you may get the flu, and chances are, the flu you get won't be the one you vaccinated for.
I have worked in nursing for twenty years. Decline the shot every year. Never have gotten the flu. Listen to people whine about feeling like crap the day after taking the shot. Have seen many people get the flu anyway. I know how it works, I also know that it is a crap shoot. To each there own. I just suggest that people research any drug before taking it. Don't just believe the hype. Drug companies spend lots of money to make people think their products are needed. Think about it. Research, don't take my word. Eat healthy, exercise, and get good rest. Prevention is better than any medicine.
