Flu disease usually peaks in Ohio in late winter/early spring, so it’s not to late to get protected! Some additional flu vaccine facts:
- Flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months old and older.
- Babies under 6 months old are too young to be vaccinated. The flu is also more dangerous for them, so parents, family, and caregivers can protect their babies by getting the vaccine themselves.
Your physician is the best person to consult with regarding any shots you may need. If they do not have the vaccines you need at their office please feel free to contact one of our ICCO member providers click here (to go to Local Clinics page) or your local health department for help.
No cost flu vaccine is available due to generous funding from the Franklin County Commissioners, Franklin County Office on Aging and Osteopathic Heritage Foundation.
YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A SEASONAL FLU SHOT AT NO COST TO YOU IF:
- You have no health insurance.
- You have health insurance that does not cover the flu shot.
– AND –
- Your income is less than $20,040 for an individual or $27,000 for a couple.
