The single most effective protection against flu is getting a flu vaccine. It is recommended that all people aged 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine every year.

What Flu Vaccines Are Available at the Health Department?
Cost of a Flu Vaccine
The Health Department can bill many health insurance plans. If you have health insurance, bring your insurance card to the clinic. If you do not have health insurance, or if your health insurance does not cover the flu vaccine, a regular 4-strain flu shot will be provided at no cost to you.
Unfortunately, the Health Department is unable to provide the flu vaccine to adults (age 19 and older) who participate in any of the PA Medical Assistance insurance plans. (PA Medical Assistance plans include Keystone First, United Healthcare Community Plan, Health Partners, Coventry Cares, and Aetna Better Health.) Please consult your primary care provider or a participating pharmacy for the vaccine. Flu vaccine is available at no charge to children with Medical Assistance insurance plans.
