Flu Vaccination Clinics Announced
Wake County will begin holding weekly community flu vaccination clinics on Friday, October 5, 2012, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m., in Clinic E of the Public Health Center, 10 Sunnybrook Road, Raleigh. This year’s flu vaccine will protect against seasonal and H1N1 flu, and will be available in both nasal spray and shot forms. No appointment is necessary.
 
Flu vaccine is recommended for everyone older than 6 months of age. Children ages 6 months to 8 years old who are getting their first flu vaccine could need a booster dose one month after they receive the first vaccine.
 
The cost for a flu vaccine (shot or nasal spray) is $30. Payment is expected at the time of service. Wake County accepts cash, checks, Medicare Part B, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield and North Carolina Health Choice. Clients with Medicare HMOs or other insurance should bring an insurance card and will be required to pay for their flu vaccine at the time of service.
 
There is no charge for people in the following groups:
  • Uninsured, pregnant women
  • Family members, caregivers or other close contacts to infants less than 6 months of age
  • Students attending any college or university in North Carolina
  • Children who qualify for the federal government’s Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program.
To qualify for vaccines under the VFC program, children must be younger than 19 years of age and at least one of the following:
