Both flu and pneumonia vaccine will be available at the Nov. 17 clinics. Those who are covered by Medicaid or Medicare Part B should bring their cards to the clinic. There is a $30 charge for a flu shot and a $45 charge for a pneumonia shot. It is the policy of the Oswego County Health Department that no one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
