Flu Shot Clinics
The CDC recommends getting the vaccine as soon as it is available. Each year, thousands of people die from influenza and even more require hospitalization. All people 6 months of age and older should get the vaccine. Influenza can occur at any time, but most influenza occurs from October through May. It takes up to 2 weeks for protection to develop after the vaccine has been given and protection lasts about a year.  

$30 payable by cash or check. 
No out-of-pocket expense for those who present a Medicare, Medicaid, or Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance card.
Children under 18 years of age who present a Medicaid card or are uninsured will receive the vaccination at no charge through the Vaccines for Children program
