It is that season once again. Teton County Public Health has received seasonal flu vaccine and is recommending early vaccinations this year. Influenza vaccines are available in many locations around Teton County, including the local public health office, workplaces, doctors’ offices and retail stores. Teton County Public Health Nurse Manager Melanie Pearce says flu vaccines are not expensive and many insurance policies reimburse patients for the costs. In fact, in Wyoming, the cost of the vaccine itself is covered for many children through the Wyoming Vaccinates Important People program. Children who qualify for free vaccines include those covered by Medicaid, uninsured children, American Indian or Alaska native children and some children considered to be underinsured. Flu shots are also available fromt eh Teton County Public Health office Monday through Friday. Those wishing an inoculation should call in advance to schedule an appointment. Costs include $15 for a flu shot, $25 for the flu mist ages 2-49 and $30 for the high dose flu shot ages 65 and over.
