Guilford County Department of Public Health has received its 2013-14 seasonal influenza “flu” vaccine for children and adults, and is now making appointments. To make an appointment for a seasonal flu vaccination at either the 1100 E. Wendover Avenue location in Greensboro or the 501 E. Green Drive High Point, call (336)641-3245. Please have your health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare and Medicare Supplement card, if you have one, ready when you make your appointment call and bring all insurance cards with you to your appointment.
The following is the cost schedule for this year’s seasonal flu vaccination:
Adults and children with United Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, or Medicaid and adults with Medicare and/or a Medicare Supplement will receive the flu vaccine at no out of pocket expense. Adults who have no insurance or some other type of health insurance will pay the entire vaccination fee at the time of the service.
For children who qualify for the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program, the vaccine will be at no cost to the parent. VFC-eligible children are those who are age birth to the 19th birthday and meet one or more of these criteria: Medicaid-eligible; American Indian or Alaskan native; uninsured or underinsured. Underinsured children are those whose insurance does not cover vaccines because a wellness plan cap has not been met, or only certain vaccines are covered.
The Department of Public Health will file claims for immunizations for clients who have other major insurance providers but clients will have to pay the entire vaccination fee at the time of the service. Please bring insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and/or Medicare Supplement information with you to your appointment.
We accept cash, personal checks with a NC address, debit card, and VISA, Mastercard and Discover credit cards. The vaccination is $25.
