Walk-In Flu Shots at Selected Locations
Health

The Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale County Health Departments are now offering annual flu shots at their health centers (Buford, Lawrenceville, Norcross, Conyers, and Covington)  to everyone 6 months and older.  Both the nasal and injectable forms of the vaccine are available. 

The cost of a flu shot is $20. Methods of payments accepted include cash and credit.  Health Departments will bill Medicaid, Medicare Part B and some private insurance.  Appointments are not required. 

This year’s flu vaccine includes three different flu viruses: an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1 virus that caused so much illness last season. 

The health department also recommends pneumonia shots for persons over 65 years old or anyone with a chronic illness or weakened immune system.  This shot will help protect them against pneumonia, a serious complication of the flu.
