The Health Department’s Immunization Program offers flu vaccines to children six months to 18-years-old who do not have health insurance and who meet eligibility requirements. They cost $10.00. The Department has only a limited amount of adult vaccines and they cost $25 – $35.

You can call the Health Department at 771-5702 to find out which clinics around town are carrying the flu vaccine. Click on the Health Department’s flu prevention page for more information on how to prevent getting the flu, and more information about the Health Department’s Immunization Program.

Follow the “4 C’s” to prevent spreading the flu virus:

CLEAN – Wash your hands often. Scrub your hands for at least 30 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
COVER – Cover your cough. Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Don’t have a tissue? The crook of your elbow will do.
CONTAIN – Contain germs by steering clear of others who are sick. If you do get sick, stay home until you’re well again, so you don’t spread more germs.
CALL – Call or see your doctor if you or your child has a fever of greater than 100 degrees.
