Flu vaccination is more important than ever during 2020-2021 to protect yourself and the people around you from flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-10 pandemic. Please take the time to get vaccinated if you have not already done so!     

 Vaccines available include high-dose vaccine for those 65 years and older, quadrivalent injectable for 6 months and older, and FluMist for those 19 years through 49 years.

 A fillable vaccine administration form is on the Rice County Public Health website:  http://www.co.rice.mn.us/256/Public-Health . If possible, please complete the form ahead of time and bring it with you to the clinic.   

Rice County Public Health bills directly to health insurances. Those with or without insurance are welcome. No out of pocket cost for vaccine.

As a reminder, “Park and Go” flu vaccination is also available every day at Rice County Public Health in Faribault at the Government Services Building. Call 507.332.6111 or 507.332.5928 if you wish to schedule an appointment in Faribault.
