Seasonal Flu Shots Now Available at Area Health Departments

September 21, 2009

Seasonal flu vaccine clinics will be held at all health departments served by the Thomas Jefferson Health District during the week of September 21. The cost is $30.

The seasonal flu vaccine will not protect against the novel H1N1 flu; however, H1N1 vaccines will be available later in the fall.

The health department bills Medicaid, Medicare, Medicare HMO, Southern Health and Anthem health insurance. Residents will need to bring their insurance card or pay with cash, check or credit card (Master Card or Visa) if not covered by one of these plans.

Pneumonia vaccine will also be available during the clinics at a cost of $53.

The seasonal flu vaccine is recommended for persons who want to reduce their risk of getting sick. It is highly recommended for those who have a greater risk of flu complications and those who work with these groups: children ages six months to 18 years, pregnant women, adults older than 50 years and those with certain chronic medical conditions.

No appointment is needed to receive a seasonal flu vaccine through the following up-coming health department clinics. Please call for information about future seasonal flu vaccine clinics.
