GET YOUR FLU SHOT.
Flu vaccination is your best protection against seasonal flu!
With two dangerous and deadly viruses circulating this fall, it will be more important than ever to get your flu shot this year. Flu vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk from flu; many of whom are also at high risk for COVID-19. We want to encourage everyone 6 months and older to get vaccinated at their clinic, pharmacy or with us.
Clinics will also be held at area schools and worksites.
First District Health Unit offices will offer the quadravalent flu shot for $52.00. The high-dose vaccine is available for those 65 and older. No payment is required at the time of service if you present your Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross BlueShield, Sanford, Tricare, Medica, Meritain or Preferred One card. With any other insurance, payment must be made at the time of service. If you do not have insurance, your income may qualify you for vaccination at a reduced rate.
To save time, you may want to print and complete a Flu Consent Form and bring it to the clinic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that every person over six months of age be vaccinated for influenza. More information can be found on the Vaccine Information Statement.
