COVID-19 Means You Need a Flu Vaccine

There Are Many Places To Get Your Flu Shot

Where you get your flu shot this year may need to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many places follow strict guidelines to create a safe environment for you.

Places you can get a flu shot

Insured or Not, There Are Ways to Get Affordable or Free Flu Shot

Children 18 years or younger: uninsured, underinsured, SoonerCare, American Indian or Alaska Native

Children who meet at least one of the above criteria are eligible to receive free federally-funded Vaccines For Children (VFC) vaccine. They are able to receive a free flu shot at health care providers enrolled in the VFC program, including local county health departments and community health centers (CHC).

Uninsured adults

If you don't have health insurance, you may be able to get a flu shot at no out-of-pocket cost. It may be offered at some  local county health departments and community health centers (CHC) across Oklahoma. Please call to check if a free flu shot is available.

Insured children and adults

With most insurance plans, you can get a flu shot for free at your health care provider or at a local pharmacy.
