The Centers for Disease Control recommends age appropriate vaccination for the flu. Two flu vaccines will be available, one for ages 18-64 and another for ages 65 and older. 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 those ages 18-64, and for anyone 65 and older it's $60. Participants may pay with cash, check, or credit card, including Mastercard, Visa, and Discover.
