Flu Shots for Children

For a child under age 18 to be vaccinated, a parent or guardian must be present and must bring prior immunization records. Parents are reminded that children younger than nine years of age who have not previously been vaccinated against the flu may need two doses of the flu vaccine given a month apart for full protection.

Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program
Parents who lack health insurance can bring their children from six months through age 18 to DOH-Sarasota for free flu vaccinations through the federally funded Vaccines for Children (VFC) program. VFC-eligible children may receive flu shots as well as immunizations required for day care and school entry.
