While most insurances will be accepted at these clinics, the cost for those with insurances that are not accepted is $25 for the flu shot, $35 for FluMist, and $55 for Tdap. Uninsured children can received the immunizations for $10. Vaccinations for uninsured and underinsured adults will be $14 but no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
