The minimum age to get a flu shot without a prescription is seven (7). Pharmacists will administer the vaccination to children younger than seven; however, they must have a prescription, whereas no prescription is required for patients seven and older. To schedule an appointment call 877-HEB-WELL or visit www.heb.com.
