Flu shots are affordable at school clinics. If your child has:
- Medicaid: Medicaid will be billed for $13.
- No health insurance: You will receive a bill from DHEC for $13.
- Private health insurance: DHEC will file a claim for $13 with your insurance carrier Any balance remaining may be billed to you.
