Flu Season Is Around The Corner And We’ll Be Ready For It

We hate to say it, but flu season is just around the corner. We’ll be ready to help you and your loved ones stay well with flu shots and health information.

New this year, Fairview will not offer FluMist (nasal flu vaccine spray) to patients for the 2016-2017 flu season.

This decision is based on recommendations from an advisory panel of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

However, the CDC continues to recommend annual flu vaccination, with either the inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) or recombinant influenza vaccine (RIV), for everyone six months and older.

Fairview hospitals and medical centers and Fairview Clinics will continue to offer injection flu vaccine to patients.

A decade of meeting the community’s flu vaccine needs

Did you know that our Minnesota Immunization Networking Initiative—more commonly known as MINI—has delivered up to 64,000 free influenza vaccinations over its 10-year history?

This is all made possible with the help of 880 volunteers from Fairview, partner health care organizations, community volunteers and students.

At Fairview we are committed to driving a healthier future for everyone we serve.
