  • All children aged 6-23 months
  • Children aged 2-18 years with underlying chronic medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, heart and kidney disease, sickle cell anemia and others
  • The flu shots cost $5, but no one will be denied if they're unable to pay
  • Parents are also encouraged to bring their children's immunization records so their children can get other required vaccinations and get their records updated
