Flu and Pneumonia
Protect Yourself and Others From the Flu
Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from the flu. Flu vaccination is recommended for all people age 6
months and older.
Flu vaccine is available at more locations than ever before, with many convenient options for Onondaga County residents. Call your doctor today to make an
appointment, or check the Flu Vaccine Finder below to see if there are any flu clinics scheduled at retail locations near you.
Starting Thursday, November 7th, uninsured individuals who need a flu vaccine can visit the Onondaga County Immunization Clinic on Thursday mornings from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. The Immunization Clinic is located at 301 Slocum Avenue, Syracuse.
The Onondaga County Immunization Clinic is a walk-in clinic and no appointment is necessary. The fee for the flu vaccine is based on a sliding fee scale, family income, and family size. The cost for a flu vaccine will range from $0 - $30. Pneumonia shots will be $65. Medicaid and Medicaid managed care will be accepted as well. Nobody will be turned away due to an inability to pay. For more information on the clinic, call 435-2000.
In addition to getting the flu vaccine, take extra hygiene precautions to protect yourself and others from the flu: wash your hands often
with warm water and soap; cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your arm when you sneeze or cough; and avoid close contact with
anyone who is sick. If you get sick with the flu, stay home and away from others for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone.
