Influenza (flu) is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even
death. Influenza vaccines, or flu shots, protect against the influenza viruses that are likely to cause
disease in the upcoming flu season. Monroe County Health Department is holding community flu
vaccine clinics this October to make getting your flu shot easy and convenient for you and your

CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year to prevent sickness
from the flu. It takes about two weeks for the flu vaccine to protect against the virus, so make a plan
today to get yourself and your family vaccinated.

Monroe County Health Department is offering quadrivalent vaccine for those less than 65 years of
age as well as high dose vaccine for those 65 years of age and older. We can bill Medicare, Medical
Assistance, Senior Preferred, and third party insurance companies to cover the $30 charge for regular
vaccine and $65 for high dose vaccine. To pre-register or to schedule individual appointments, please
