Thank you for your interest in utilizing Bethesda Medical Associates for your flu shot needs this season.
Immunization against influenza continues to be our best defense against the flu and is important to your health, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this time, we are encouraging flu shots at all in-office and lab appointments. This year we are also scheduling dedicated flu shot clinics in order to serve our patients in a safe, convenient, and innovative way during the COVID pandemic.
Currently, we are scheduling appointments for flu shot clinic sessions at our office on Monday, October 19th from 12 to 5 PM. We will be offering additional dates as the need presents and will send out additional emails to patients who have not yet scheduled.
All flu shot appointments must be scheduled in advance and are by appointment only. In order to maintain social distancing and patient flow, we are unable to offer any other services at the time of your flu shot.
You can either schedule your appointment online on your patient portal (instructions below) or by calling our office at (301) 493-9320.
You will be required to do a pre-visit registration online in advance of your appointment. We kindly ask that you wear a mask when arriving for your flu shot. Please note that vaccination appointments are reserved for our BMA patients only. We are excited to provide flu shots in this new format to serve you during this challenging time. We appreciate your attention to this new process and wish you a safe and healthy autumn season as we continue to be your partners in health.
