The Health Department is offering flu vaccine by appointment at its four county health centers,  The Health Department will offer the quadrivalent vaccine, which protects against four strains of the flu virus.

Cost is $25, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay. The cost of flu vaccine is covered by Medicaid and the federal program Vaccine for Children for those who are eligible. The Health Department will vaccinate anyone who wishes to receive it, but individuals with private insurance may want to consider getting vaccinated by another provider, as the Health Department does not directly bill private insurance plans.
