According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza (the flu) is an infection of the nose, throat, and lungs caused by influenza viruses. There are many different influenza viruses that are constantly changing. They cause illness, hospital stays and deaths in the United States each year.

The flu can be very dangerous for children, according to the CDC. Each year about 20,000 children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized from flu complications, like pneumonia.

Most insurance policies provide coverage for immunizations. Insurance cards are required for those with insurance, and Medicare patients need to bring Medicare cards. The cost for those who are not insured is $25.

Photo identification is also required for flu shots, which will be provided by Classen Urgent Care Clinic of Norman.
