Ban the bug week- it’s not too late to get the influenza vaccination!


Fri, Nov 30th, 2012
Posted in All Health & Wellness

December 2-8 is National Influenza Vaccination Week and the statewide Ban the Bug effort to encourage Minnesotans to get vaccinated against influenza. Fillmore County Public Health (FCPH) is promoting these efforts by offering flu vaccinations via appointment.

“It is not too late to get a flu shot,” said Fillmore County Immunization Coordinator Tina Peters. “The Ban the Bug Campaign seeks to remind people that there is still time to protect themselves against influenza.”

Influenza vaccinations are recommended for all Minnesotans over age six months, but they are especially important for young children six months to five years old, seniors, people of any age with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, people living with or caring for those at high risk for complications from influenza, and healthcare workers.

At Fillmore County Public Health, flu mist vaccinations are available for healthy individuals aged 2 to 50. The cost of the flu mist is $25.00 each. Both adults and children with a Minnesota Health Care Plan can receive flu mist free of charge if all health insurance cards are presented during the appointment.

FCPH also has flu vaccinations available for people with no insurance or whose insurance does not cover the cost of a flu vaccination. These vaccinations are available for anyone age six months or older.

For more information about the Ban the Bug vaccination appointments, call Tina Peters at 507-765-3898.
