Cochise Health & Social Services

Seasonal Flu Shot & TDAP Vaccine Clinics & Information

Flu Season is here!  According to the Centers for Disease Control seasonal influenza can start circulating as early as October and can end as late as May. Cochise Health & Social Services is committed to providing seasonal flu vaccinations to County residents every year. Our goal this year is to provide shots to those residents who were unable to receive a shot through other local resources. For more information on our clinics please call our Flu Shot Hotline at 432-9409 or the location in your area. 

As a continued service this year, Cochise Health & Social Services has maintained the partnership with Americares and Sanofi Pastuer to deliver a Tdap vaccination free of charge to all qualified adults in Cochise County. The Tdap vaccine is a combination vaccine for Tetnus, Diptheria, and Pertussis. Each of these contagious diseases can cause serious health issues for adults, children and infants.  If you are a parent, grandparent, child care provider, public health worker, or in any other field/job that has regular contact with children and infants we strongly encourage you to visit one of our clinics located around the County to get your free vaccination.   For more information  click here  to visit our TDAP webpage.

Adult Flu Shot & TDAP Clinic Schedule

This year Adult Flu Shots are available for $25 and the TDAP vaccine is free. Children’s Flu Shots are free through our Vaccines for Children Program. We have the ability to provide vaccine to insured children and can bill your insurance. We accept Medicare Part B but are unable to bill the Medicare HMO and PPO plans such as Medicare Advantage at this time.  If you have private insurance, AHCCCS, or Tri-Care, we encourage you to obtain the flu shot from your primary care physician. Payments can be made in the form of cash, check, money order, and in Sierra Vista only MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Visa Debit ($2.50 service fee applies).

Who Should Get A Seasonal Flu Shot

People at high risk for complications from the flu, including:

  • Children aged 6 months until their 5th birthday, 
  • People 50 years of age and older,

People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from seasonal flu, including:

  • Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu (see above) 
  • Healthcare workers

What's Included in the Seasonal Flu Shot This Year? 

The seasonal flu shot is all-in-one this year. Based on the FDA recommendation, the new seasonal flu vaccine to be used in the 2011-2012 influenza season will contain the following:

  • (Seasonal Influenza A) 2009 H1N1-like virus
  • (Influenza A) H3N2-like virus
  • (Influenza B) B strain-like virus

The seasonal flu vaccine is usually a trivalent vaccine (a three component vaccine) with each component selected to protect against one of the three groups of influenza viruses circulating most commonly in humans.

What You Can Do to Avoid Getting Sick:

With or without a flu shot, good, common-sense health habits are a great way for every Cochise County resident to help themselves—and those around them—stay healthy:

  • Clean your hands.  Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. 
  • Avoid close contact.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze—but not with your hands!
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
    Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

The Cochise County Seasonal Flu Shot Hotline number is 520-432-9409.
