Flu


A flu vaccine is the FIRST and BEST step to prevent getting the flu. Flu vaccine will keep you and your loved ones safe from a very serious disease. The recommendation for flu vaccine is EVERY ONE - EVERY YEAR. Flu shots are available for children and adults. 

As of September 1, 2020, immunizations are available by appointment only in the Public Health Clinic. No walk-in immunizations provided. To schedule an appointment for a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, call (262) 896-8430 & press "option 5".
For Infants, Children & Teens:
  • The CDC recommends that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a flu vaccine every year.
  • If your child is insured, please make an appointment with your primary care provider for vaccinations.
  • If your child is eligible for Vaccines for Children (VFC), you can make an appointment with Waukesha County Public Health Clinic for vaccinations.
    •   ELIGIBILITY: Children through 18 years of age are eligible if they are Medicaid eligible or enrolled, uninsured, American Indian or Alaska Native or underinsured (insurance does not cover vaccines - please contact your insurance provider to verify if vaccines are covered).
  • All recommended childhood immunizations are offered through the Vaccines for Children Program (VFC).  For each vaccine, a $10 administration fee is applied.  (If necessary, fees may be waived.)
  • Please bring all written immunization records, if available. 
  • A parent or legal guardian must be present during the appointment for children under the age of 18.
For Adults:
  • The CDC recommends that all adults receive a flu vaccine every year.
  • For adults, the cost for flu vaccine is $30.
