Individuals booking online will create an account when they select an appointment slot to receive a confirmation and other notifications about their appointment(s). The online scheduling system is available in English and Spanish.

Brunswick County’s online scheduling tool includes appointments for both flu and COVID-19 vaccines. You are encouraged to double check your appointment selection before you book to ensure you have selected a flu vaccine spot.

You will need to bring a copy of your photo ID and insurance cards, if available.

Annual flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone six months of age and older. Children younger than five years, adults 65 years and older, pregnant women, and people with underlying medical conditions are all at an increased risk of severe illness or complications from the flu.

Health Services will offer both regular flu vaccines and the high-dose version of the vaccine, which is recommended for people 65 years and older.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Health Services will require all participants to wear a face covering when visiting the clinic. Anyone who has a fever or a symptom of COVID-19 should not come to the clinic.

Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, headache, cough, sore throat, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, body aches, loss of taste or smell. If you have one or more of these symptoms, wait until they have completely resolved and you have not had a fever for at least 24 hours.

Regular flu shots are $45 and the high-dose vaccine (recommended for those 65 years or older) is $86. 

Health Services accepts cash, checks, Medicaid, Medicare, and most major insurance.

If you are unsure about your insurance, call 910.253.2354 for assistance.
