Where can I get a flu shot? 

Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) provides flu shots at no cost. During the 2021-2022 flu season, flu shots are free to Lorain County residents and were paid for by CARES Act funding through the Lorain County Commissioners. 

Call 440-284-3206 to schedule a flu shot appointment.

LCPH offers three flu vaccine options: flu shot for ages 6 months through 64 years, high-dose flu shot for adults 65 years and older, and nasal flumist for ages 2 years through 49 years. 

What is the flu?

The flu is caused by a virus that passes easily from one person to another. When sick with the flu, people often feel some (or even all) of these flu symptoms.

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea (This is more common in children than adults.)

The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against flu is to get a flu shot every flu season.

Who should get a flu shot?

The CDC recommends a yearly flu shot for everyone 6 months and older, except in rare cases. The flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your chance of catching the flu and its possible serious effects. A flu shot offers you the best protection through the peak flu season in Northeast Ohio.
