Flu Shots

Flu season is here

The flu can have a serious impact on the health of our communities, and this year with COVID-19, it’s more important than ever for everyone to get the flu vaccine. The flu shots can go a long way to protect you, your family and the community. Getting the flu shot is an easy way to help save lives, and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport is making it more convenient than ever so that we can work together to fight the flu.

If you or a family member has flu symptoms, please visit an Urgent Care location or see a doctor online 24/7 with an Anywhere Care Virtual Visit.
