The Cullman Regional Pharmacy is now offering flu shots for ages 8 and up. No appointment is necessary and most major insurance plans will cover the cost of the vaccination.

 Getting vaccinated before flu activity begins helps protect you once flu season starts in your community. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it takes about two weeks after vaccination for the body’s immune response to fully respond and for you to be protected, so make plans to get vaccinated. CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October and advises people age 65 and older receive the high-dosage vaccine, which is covered by Medicare.

The Cullman Regional Pharmacy is located in the Cullman Regional Urgent Care Center (1958 AL Hwy 157, Cullman AL, 35058).  Flu shots will be available Monday – Friday from 9am to 4pm. For more information, contact the Cullman Regional Pharmacy at 256-737-2633.
