Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death.
Flu Shots are available at all seven of our Health Centers throughout the entirety of the Flu season. It is not too late into the season to get a flu shot, and receiving the flu vaccine can help prevent you from getting and spreading the flu virus to your friends and family.
Currently, we have vaccinations for children (ages 6-35 months), children to adults (ages 3 and up), and the high dose vaccine for seniors (ages 65 and older). Preservative free, latex free, and egg-free vaccinations are also available. Children can receive their flu shot at no cost through the Vaccines for Children* program offered at all OHI Health Centers if they do not have insurance, are self-pay patients, or are recipients of Medicaid Plan A.
If you have any questions about receiving the flu shot, or would like to schedule an appointment to get the vaccine, please fill out the appointment request form below.
*The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program is a federally funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of inability to pay.
Flu symptoms can include:
• fever* or feeling
• sore throat
• runny or stuffy nose
• muscle and body aches
• fatigue (tiredness)
• sometimes diarrhea and vomiting, though this is more common in children than adults
