JACKSON – Pediatric flu shots are now available at all Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) county clinics. Seasonal flu vaccination is recommended for anyone aged six months and older as a way to prevent the spread of flu, and more importantly, save lives.
Adult flu shots are also available. Only adults who are under-insured or uninsured and who meet certain high-risk criteria qualify for an adult flu vaccine at MSDH county health department clinics. Flu shots for insured adults are now widely available through private physicians, pharmacies, and retail centers. Those 18 and under who are eligible for the vaccines can receive flu vaccination for $10. Insurance, Medicaid and CHIP is accepted for children’s flu shots.
