The 2016- 2017 flu season vaccinations are now available at the Putnam County Health Department.

The Putnam County Health Department would like to remind residents that is important to get their flu vaccinations early in the season to avoid getting sick with: a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle/body aches, headaches, tiredness, vomiting and/or diarrhea.

Protecting yourself and the ones you love is as easy as calling to make an appointment.


The PCHD offers the flu vaccine for $25. We also can process your insurance for you. We are contracted with Anthem BC/BS, Cigna, Sagamore, Siho, Encore, Medicare Part B, Medicaid and Healthy Indiana Plan.

Some flu basics to better protect you and your family and stop the spread of germs are:

  • Get vaccinated
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects often

If you do become sick:
  • See your primary care physician
  • Limit contact with others
  • Throw used Kleenex away
  • Cough into your sleeve/elbow to reduce the spread of germs
  • The CDC recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone

The Putnam County Health Department is located inside the Putnam County Hospital in the Medical Office Building Suite 1500. We are open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. We close for lunch from noon to 1pm.

You can call 765-658-2782 and make your appointment.
