Because of the cost of the vaccine, there is a suggested donation of $20 at Healthy Community Coalition clinics (or those who get shots can donate what they can afford). Insurance, Medicare or Medicaid cannot be accepted. The coalition buys all vaccine used and appreciates donations to help cover costs.

Flu shots will be provided to individuals 18 and older. Those younger than 18 are encouraged to contact their primary care medical provider.
