Finding Flu and Other Respiratory Vaccinations
Vaccination against flu, COVID-19, and RSV is the best way to reduce your risk of having severe illness caused by these diseases. Learn more about these vaccines here: Immunization Overview for Fall and Winter 2023-2024.
- The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine and this season’s annual flu vaccine.
- The RSV vaccine is recommended for certain groups:
- All infants should be protected against severe RSV illness by either an RSV vaccine given to pregnant people, or a preventive antibody shot given to infants after birth.
- Some children aged 8 months to 19 months at increased risk for severe RSV disease are also recommended to receive the RSV antibody shot.
- Adults 60 years and older also may receive one dose of RSV vaccine and should talk with their healthcare provider about whether RSV vaccination is right for them.
Please note: How COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed changed in September 2023 when these products moved to the commercial market, but there is still plenty of vaccine supply.
Flu, COVID-19, and RSV vaccines may be given at the same visit.
You can get respiratory vaccinations in many different places:
Provider’s office: Ask your healthcare provider about getting the flu vaccine and which type is best for you. Most offices have it available for their patients. Also ask about other respiratory illness vaccines including COVID-19 and RSV. See the above chart for details. Ask if your insurance will cover the cost and if there is a copay.
Local pharmacies and clinics: To find a location, visit vaccines.gov or see the list below.
If you are homebound: Ask your doctor or homecare agency about getting a flu vaccination and other vaccinations.
If you do not have insurance: Contact Access Carroll at 410-871-1478. For COVID-19 vaccines for adults without insurance or whose insurance doesn’t cover the full cost of the COVID-19 vaccine, visit our COVID-19 Vaccination page for Health Department clinic dates.
For children: Ask your pediatrician or family doctor if they are offering the flu vaccine. Also, many pharmacists and clinics can vaccinate children. The Health Department is working to schedule another clinic for children aged 6 months – 18 years in November. If you are having trouble finding a flu vaccine for your children, call our Community Health Services program for assistance at 410-876-4949.
Children who are eligible for the Vaccines for Children program can get COVID-19 and flu vaccines through the Health Department. Visit our Vaccines for Children page for more information. Children who have insurance can get their COVID-19 vaccine at pharmacies and clinics (see list below) or Howard County Health Department COVID-19 clinics for children 6 months – 11 years of age.
Respiratory Vaccines at Carroll County Area Pharmacies and Clinics
If you choose to go to a pharmacy or clinic, call ahead and ask: 1) Is the vaccine in stock, and what types do you offer? 2) What ages can you vaccinate? 3) Do you accept my insurance? Can you bill my insurance (most can bill) or do I need to pay and get reimbursed? 4) What are your pharmacy/clinic hours?
For children, please note that pharmacists may be able to vaccinate children ages 3 and up and Minute Clinics may be able to vaccinate children 18 months and up. Call to confirm.
