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 and November to make getting your flu shot easy
and convenient for you and your family!

CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older gets a flu shot 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 contact us at 608-269-8666.
