Flu vaccine supply | Print |

This year we are offering the traditional injectable flu vaccine, which contains inactivated (killed) virus, is licensed for anyone age six months and older.  The injectable flu vaccine is made from inactivated virus, so it cannot cause influenza.  Some patients experience soreness at the injection site lasting less than two days, but serious side effects from this vaccine are extremely rare.

The vaccine formulation includes protection against A/New Caledonia/20/99 (H1N1)-like, A/Wisconsin/67/2005 (H3N2)-like and B/Malaysia/2506/2004-like antigens. ¬†The fee for a flu shot at Fulton County Public Health clinics is $25.00. The flu vaccine is available on a sliding scale based on income. Costs vary for flu and pneumococcal vaccines through other providers. Flu and pneumococcal vaccines are covered by Medicare Part B. ¬†Fulton County Board of Health accepts all types of insurance including Medicaid and Medicare. ¬† Other health care providers may have flu vaccines available as well; such as local pharmacies, major grocery entities and private providers. Immunization services are on a ‚Äėwalk-in‚Äô basis in all of Fulton County‚Äôs health centers.

Fulton County Board of Health has the flu vaccine available for the citizens of Fulton County.  Residents of Fulton County may visit their nearest Health Center to receive their vaccination.  As the flu season progresses the need for flu vaccination may increase.  Therefore we urge that high-risk individuals and health care workers to get their flu vaccine before they become sick with the flu.
