Flu Vaccinations

The influenza (flu) season is fast approaching and the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against the flu is to get a flu vaccine. 

The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) offers seasonal flu shots to the general public during annual flu shot clinics.

Flu shots are available for those ages 18-64.  Cost is $30.00 for the regular vaccine. A high dose vaccine for ages 65 and older is $68. The shots will be fully covered for those with Medicare Part B or Medicare Advantage cards only. Those who are eligible must present their Medicare Part B/Medicare Advantage card prior to receiving their flu shot. No Medicaid or private insurance will be accepted to cover the cost of seasonal flu shots. Cash, check, credit card or Medicare Part B/Medicare Advantage Cards only.

The flu vaccine does not cause the flu and pregnant women should consult their doctor before receiving the seasonal flu shot. Also, anyone who is allergic to eggs should not receive the vaccine.

 

To help maintain proper physical distancing in the hospital, individuals must now call and schedule an appointment to attend a flu shot clinic. Walks-in will not be accepted. 

To schedule an appointment, call 419.483.4040, Ext. 6610.
