  • Getting a flu vaccine is easy, and it is the first and most important step you can take in protecting yourself and your loved ones from flu. There are a number of places where you can get flu vaccine, including your local health department, vaccination clinics, doctors' offices, retail pharmacies, and some schools and workplaces. 

    Contact your doctor or Local Health Department to ask about flu vaccine availability, or for a list of flu vaccination clinics near you, please visit the Vaccine Finder.

    Most flu vaccine is free or low cost with insurance; however, if you are uninsured or underinsured there are options available.

    The Michigan VFC Program provides vaccines at no cost to children less than 19 years of age and are either Medicaid-eligible, uninsured, underinsured, or American Indian/Alaska Native. Ask your healthcare provider if they are a VFC provider or contact your Local Health Department.

    The Michigan AVP Program provides vaccine at no cost to adults 19 years and older seen at participating providers such as Local Health Departments, Federally Qualified Health Centers, Tribal Health Centers, Migrant Health Centers, and more! The MI-AVP program is expanding to ensure adult flu vaccine is available at even more provider offices and pop-up clinics across Michigan.
