Visit a ProHealth Care location for seasonal flu and pneumonia vaccination

It’s time to protect yourself and people around you from seasonal flu and pneumonia by visiting a ProHealth Care immunization clinic. A complete list of locations and times for flu and pneumonia vaccinations in Waukesha County can be found at ProHealthCare.org/Flu.

Vaccination lowers the risk of contracting the flu. When more people get vaccinated, less flu can spread through the community. For the best protection, everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated each year.

Vaccination is needed every year because the body’s immune response from the vaccination declines over time and the vaccine formula is updated each year. ProHealth Care’s providers recommend getting an influenza immunization  now as it takes about two weeks for the flu vaccine to protect the body against the virus.

Payment must be made at the time of vaccination. Cash, checks and credit card payments are accepted. Insurance will be billed. Under the Affordable Care Act, flu and other vaccines are required to be fully covered by health insurance plans without a co-payment or coinsurance charge. It is wise to verify coverage prior to arrival at an immunization clinic as some plans require that vaccinations be given by specific providers or at specific locations.
