ROCKFORD/WOODSTOCK/MCHENRY, Illinois – In an effort to encourage vaccinations, Mercyhealth has started flu shot clinics in McHenry and Winnebago County, Illinois. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome. For your convenience, we will bill your insurance. Please bring your insurance card. If you prefer to pay for your shot, the regular flu vaccine is available for $38 and high-dose vaccine for $68, payable by cash, check or credit card at time of vaccination.
Getting an influenza vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, but flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death. This fall and winter, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) believes it’s likely that both flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will spread. That is why getting a flu vaccine will be more important than ever. The CDC recommends all people 6 months and older get a yearly flu vaccine.
