Flu Prevention and Influenza Vaccine Information

Flu season is just around the corner. The flu is a serious infection and should not be taken lightly. Everyone needs to take preventative steps to have the best chance at avoiding this potentially life threatening health challenge. Flu shots are recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months.

The Health Center is offering the flu shot to everyone 4 years and older. Most insurance plans cover this preventative vaccine at 100% and the Health Center will submit the claim to your carrier on your behalf. If you do not have insurance, or you would prefer us not to submit the claim to your insurance company, the charge is $30.00.

For children 6 months-18 years old who are uninsured or covered under Medicaid/All Kids, the Health Center has a limited supply of flu vaccines supplied by the Vaccines for Children Program. Please call for pricing and availability.

If you have any questions, please direct them to the Health Center at 773-298-3712.
