ELKHART — The Elkhart County Health Department is holding four flu vaccine clinics in the next month.

Vaccines are $29 for children age 6 months to 35 months and $25 for people age 3 and older.

Medicare Part B is also accepted with a Medicare card.

All the clinics will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 16, Jan. 22, Jan. 29 and Feb. 5 at the Lincoln Center, 608 Oakland Ave.

The clinics are scheduled as local health professionals have noticed an uptick in flu cases this season.

The health department recommends all people aged 6 months and older be vaccinated annually. Young children, the elderly and people with certain health conditions are at a high risk for serious flu complications, according to a health department news release.

For more information or to make an appointment call 574-523-2127 or 877-523-2283, ext. 2127.
