Seattle Children’s is providing influenza vaccinations to inpatients and outpatients during their scheduled visits. Seattle Children’s is also offering the vaccination to Emergency Department and Urgent Care patients. All vaccinations given to patients are documented in the Child Profile Immunization Registry. Patients are screened for eligibility.

We are also offering flu shot vouchers to patients’ family members and household contacts age 3 and older during patient visits and stays. The vouchers can be used at any Bartell Drugs with no out-of-pocket cost (Bartell will bill family members’ insurance, if available, and charge any remaining balance to Seattle Children’s). Family members and household contacts 6 months to 35 months old will need to get their flu vaccine at their primary care provider’s office.

Seattle Children’s efforts to vaccinate patients are in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase access to the vaccine in healthcare settings.
