The supply of nasal spray flu vaccine will be limited during the 2019-20 season because of manufacturing constraints, according to AstraZeneca. Family Health will have a limited supply of the nasal spray flu vaccine this season.

If a patient has a scheduled medical visit, the flu shot will be included in their visit and there will not be an additional charge to receive the flu shot on that visit.

Patients who do not have a visit with a Family Health provider in the clinic on the same day will pay a nominal administration fee for the flu shot based on their poverty scale: $15 for levels A and B, $16 for levels C and D; $17 for level E; and $18 for levels F and G.

Most insurance plans have no out-of-pocket expense.
