“Every year in the United States there are more than 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths from complications of influenza,” Amy Schmidt, Director of Nursing at Richland Public Health, said. “Nobody likes to be sick. Getting the flu will cause you to miss work or school along with your favorite activities. You might also pass the flu on to your family, friends or co-workers. Protect yourself and others. Get immunized against the flu.”

Richland Public Health pricing for flu vaccine is $27 if paying by cash or check. Some children will qualify for lower cost flu vaccine through the Vaccines for Children program. Prices may vary for adults age 65 and over who will receive a high dose flu vaccine. The Health Department accepts Medicare/Medicaid, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Medical Mutual, and United Health Care. Please bring your insurance card and driver’s license.

The Richland Public Health flu immunization program is partially funded by local tax levy dollars.
