Influenza Vaccine is now recommended for all children 6 months through 18 years of age. The Wood County Health Department has a limited supply of free flu vaccine for children. Children's flu vaccine can be received at the Health Department (call for appointment).

Free flu vaccine provided by the Vaccine For Children (VFC) program is now restricted to children age 6 months through 18 years who have Medical Assistance/Badger Care; No insurance; Insurance that does not cover vaccines; Native American or Alaskan Native.

If your child meets the eligibility for the free flu vaccine, please call 715-421-8911 or 715-387-8646 to make an appointment at the Health Department. No health department community flu clinics will be offered.

If a child has private health insurance that covers vaccines, parents should call their health care provider for the vaccine. The health department no longer offers adult flu vaccine. Adult flu vaccines are available through medical clinics, pharmacies, and community clinics. Aspirus VNA sponsors adult and children community flu clinics, see www.aspirus.org/fluclinics for a complete listing of clinic times and places.
