Posted in All Health & Wellness

Fillmore County Public Health is accepting flu mist vaccination appointments as a part of a statewide effort to encourage Minnesotans to get vaccinated against influenza during National Influenza Vaccination Week December 8-14.

“It is not too late to get a flu shot,” said Immunization Coordinator Tina Peters. “National Influenza Vaccination Week serves to remind people that there is still time to protect themselves against influenza.”

Influenza vaccinations are recommended for all Minnesotans over age 6 months. The cost of the flu mist is $25 each. Both adults and children with a Minnesota Health Care Plan can receive vaccine free of charge if all health insurance cards are presented during the appointment. If you have no health insurance, contact public health about vaccination options.

For more info or to schedule vaccination appointment, call Fillmore County Public Health at 507-765-3898.
