The Department of Health (DOH) is supplying free influenza (flu) vaccination for uninsured adults over 18 years of age this flu season. The flu vaccine only protects against the flu virus and does not prevent, nor cause, any other respiratory infection including COVID-19 disease.
Northeast Tri County Health District (NETCHD) will offer free flu vaccine, with a nominal $20 administration fee. No one will be denied the flu vaccine because of inability to pay this fee. The DOH state supplied flu vaccine will be available now through June 2021, or while supplies last, to any adult who does not have health insurance. No proof of residency or immigration status will be required. All flu vaccine recipients will be pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms and be expected to fill out standard consent forms.
Please contact NETCHD at 509-684-2262, option 1 for details, such as hours and vaccine availability.
