This year’s flu vaccine is quadrivalent, covering four strains of the flu virus, including H1N1. A doctor’s order is not required to receive a flu shot. MDH will offer flu shots to anyone 18 years of age or older. Anyone under the age of 18 should contact their primary care provider. Participants are asked to wear a short sleeve shirt as all shots are given in the upper arm.

There is no out-of-pocket charge to the Medicare Part B recipient. Persons with Medicare Part B must present their Medicare card, and MDH will bill for this service. The flu shot is $35 for all other persons. Participants may pay with cash, check, or credit card, including Mastercard, Visa and Discover.

For more information about the MDH Home Health Care sponsored community flu shot clinics, go to “Classes & Events” on the MDH website or call MDH Home Health Care at (309) 836-1544.
