Many au pairs and host families are looking for places to get flu shots this time of year. Au Pair insurance does not cover immunizations, but there are lots of places to get flu shots for $35 or less. If the host family is urging their au pair to get the seasonal flu shot and she agrees to get it, the host family would be responsible for the expense.
If you are planning to get the seasonal flu vaccine, it is recommended that you get it as early as possible.
Anne Arundel County Health Department – Free flu shots are available by appointment and at some vaccine clinics, registration is required.
Montgomery County Health Department – Free flu shot clinics, online registration is required. will be added as they are scheduled.
Prince George’s County – Free flu shot clinics, no appointment necessary.
State of Maryland – Find a vaccine clinic search feature, this does not seem to have all of the local health department flu shot clinics listed. Check back for updates and check your specific county health department website for more options.
I have been told that Kaiser Permanente is offering free flu shots as well.
Flu shots are also available for a fee (usually $25-35) at pharmacies such as Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc.
