2016-17 Seasonal Influenza (Flu) Vaccine


The Waukesha County Public Health Division has flu vaccine available as a walk-in service.

Preventing Seasonal Flu: Get Vaccinated

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. Please call ahead (262) 896-8430 to be sure the flu vaccine is available.

Children

The CDC recommends that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a flu vaccine every year.

Bring vaccine records to clinic.

Parent or guardian must sign Public Health Division forms for children's immunizations.

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 visit the Public Health Division clinics for flu vaccinations for a fee of $10, which can be waived if necessary.

Who is eligible for VFC? Children through 18 years of age who are:

  • Medicaid eligible or enrolled
  • Uninsured
  • American Indian or Alaska Native
  • Insured but insurance does not cover flu vaccine
