The City of Farmington Hills Adults 50 & Better Division, in cooperation with the Oakland County Health Department, will offer flu shots for all ages on Tuesday, October 20 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Costick Center located at 28600 Eleven Mile Road, between Middlebelt and Inkster.

A flu shot is recommended annually for everyone ages six months and older.  Getting a flu shot is especially important for those 65 years or older, anyone with medical problems, and for people who live or work with high-risk individuals.

Participants must call the Oakland County Health Department Nurse on Call at 800-848-5533 to make an appointment.  Please arrive at the Costick Center five minutes before your scheduled time, bring a picture ID with a current address and your Medicare/Medicaid ID card.  Wear a short sleeve shirt or one with a sleeve that can be rolled up to the top of your arm.  You must wear a mask to enter the building.

You can pay with cash or credit card (Visa/Mastercard), Medicare/Medicaid, most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, Blue Care Network or additional insurances accepted at the Costick Center.  For those without insurance, there is a cash fee of $24 or the high dose flu shots are available for a fee of $54 for those ages 65 and older.  No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay; there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available.
