Flu shots and other vaccine services are available at many locations in communities. To help you protect yourself against the flu and other conditions, Innovation Health has contracted with the following providers of vaccine services. Please use the links provided to find a location near you. Remember to confirm with the provider that they accept your medical plan prior to receiving services.
For specific locations where you can receive immunizations, please visit any of the websites below. You may also be able to get your seasonal flu vaccination from your doctor or at public health clinics. Senior citizen centers also often offer vaccinations
You should not go to an emergency room for vaccinations, since it is not an emergency service.
