Immunizations

Florida Department of Health in Volusia County Immunizations

Get the shot Not the flu

To protect against the seasonal flu, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest everyone age six months or older get a flu vaccine every year. The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County (DOH-Volusia) offers flu vaccines from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at all DOH-Volusia locations.

Appointments for flu shots are not required.

Flu and pneumonia vaccines are based on these fees:

  • $30 basic (quadrivalent) vaccine

  • $50 high-dose flu vaccine for people age 65 and older

  • $85 pneumococcal (PPSV23) vaccine

  • $150 pneumococcal (PCV13) vaccine

  • There is no cost for Medicaid and non-HMO Medicare Part B subscribers.

Annual flu shots are recommended for people at high risk for complications from the flu including:

  • people age 65 and older

  • pregnant women

  • infants over six months of age

  • people with weakened immune systems or long-term health problems (such as asthma, diabetes, or kidney disease)

DOH-Volusia also recommends pneumonia shots for people over 65 years of age or anyone with a chronic illness or weakened immune system. This shot will help protect against pneumonia - a serious complication of the flu.
