It’s flu shot time again. The Sangamon County Health Department is recommending that everyone six months of age and older get their yearly flu vaccination as soon as they’re available.
Seasonal flu immunizations are free to all Medicare B and Medicaid recipients. Sangamon County residents who do not meet that criteria may also reserve their shot for a $27.00 fee. This year, those 65 and older will have a choice between two vaccines – a regular one and one with a higher dosage.
The Sangamon County Health Department on South Grand has walk-in clinics during their regular hours beginning September 10th.
