The Southwest Public Health Department has flu vaccine available for $18 or NO CHARGE with some insurances.
“An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and lessen the chance that you will spread it to others,” says Susan Peck, SWUPHD Nursing Director. “We have the regular flu shot or the high-dose version for seniors, along with nasal spray vaccine that is approved for ages two to 49.”
The flu vaccine is formulated to protect against the strains of influenza most likely to infect people this fall and winter. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) advises everyone over 6 months of age to get vaccinated, although special emphasis is placed on people over 65 years old, pregnant women, and those with chronic health issues. Family members and caregivers of those groups are also high priority.
You can call your county’s SWUPHD office to make an appointment (St. George office accepts walk-ins).
Insurances accepted: Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, PEHP, SelectHealth, United Healthcare, Tall Tree, DMBA, Altius
