Lakeland Care will administer the quadrivalent flu vaccine which offers protection against four different flu viruses. The high-dose quadrivalent flu vaccine will be available for those age 65 years and older.
If community members would like Lakeland Care to bill their health insurance, they will need to bring their insurance card with them. Most health insurance programs cover the cost of the vaccine
To pay at time of vaccination, the cost is $37 or $74 for the high-dose vaccine (cash or check only; credit cards not accepted).
