Flu Shots and other recommended vaccines

Annual flu shots are recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months. Flu shots are available at JCHD and at locations throughout the county in the fall of each year. Flu vaccine is usually available from September through the early spring at the health department.

High dose vaccine is available for ages 65 and older while supplies last.

Cash, check, credit or debit cards accepted. Most insurance plans, including Medical Cards and Medicare are accepted.

Immunization schedule for children (0-6) years old

Immunization schedule for adolescents, preteens, and teens (7-18 years old)

    • There are several relatively new vaccines for adolescents. We encourage parents to get their adolescents vaccinated with Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and accellular pertussis), meningococcal, and HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccines beginning at age 11 or 12.

Immunization schedule for adults (19 years and older)

The above referenced immunization schedules are correct for the general population. Be aware that in some situations, people who are immunocompromised or have other serious health conditions may need to follow different guidelines or be vaccinated more frequently. Spacing of vaccine doses around receipt of blood transfusions, immunglobulins, or chemotherapy agents may also require special consideration.
