(October 20, 2008) The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness will continue to offer flu shots by appointment through the remainder of October and through November as long as vaccine supplies last.

Gray Street and at the Newburg Health Center at 4810 Exeter Avenue.

Flu shots cost $30. The nasal flu mist costs $35. (The nasal flu mist can be used for healthy people age 2 – 49 years only). Medicare Part B and Passport will cover the cost for those with those insurance plans. The Department of Public Health and Wellness never turns anyone away because of inability to pay.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention especially recommends that people who are at high risk of having serious flu complications or people who live with or care for those at high risk for serious complications get a flu shot each year. These people are:

  • Children aged six months up to their 19th birthday
  • Pregnant women
  • People 50 years of age and older
  • People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions
  • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu
