The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccination each year. The CDC recommends seasonal influenza vaccine for everyone, 6 months of age and older. Seasonal flu vaccine clinics have been scheduled by the Fond du Lac County Health Department. These dates are listed below, on our Facebook page and on the Fond du Lac County Website calendar at www.fdlco.wi.gov. The Health Department will also be scheduling clinics at area schools for children ages 4 and up.
If you have influenza symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue), you should stay home, and stay away from others until you are fever free for 24 hours without using fever-reducing medications.
Certain groups of people are at higher risk of serious flu-related complications. This includes people 65 years and older, people of any age with chronic medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), pregnant women, and young children. Persons in these high risk categories who have flu-like symptoms should call their healthcare provider to find out if there is more they need to do.
Standard influenza vaccine is available. Fond du Lac County Health Department is offering influenza vaccine for $30.00 per dose and high dose vaccine (age 65 & up) $50.00 per dose.
Medicare Part B, Medicare Advantage Plan and Medicaid will be accepted if an accurate number is provided. Receipts for cash will be issued upon request and may be submitted to other insurances for possible reimbursement. If you have any questions, or are interested in having an on-site influenza clinic, call the Health Department at 929-3085.
