Rushford flu shot clinic


Mon, Nov 14th, 2016
Posted in Rushford Health & Wellness

Healthcare providers recommend that infants over six months, children and adults, including women who are pregnant, get a flu vaccine. Getting vaccinated not only helps protect you from the flu, it helps protect those you come in contact with.

Flu shots will be given on a walk-in, first come, first serve basis at Rushford Clinic, 109 W. Jessie Street in Rushford, Wednesday, November 16, 3:30-6:30 p.m.

Insurance will be filed, or individuals may pay $36 at time of check in. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Please note that due to new information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), FluMist will not be available at Winona Health this season.

Children age 8 and under who did not receive a flu vaccine during last year’s flu season may need a second vaccine 30 days after receiving the first vaccine dose. If you have questions regarding dosage, please contact your healthcare provider.

More information about influenza is available on the Winona Health website: www.winonahealth.org/flu.

If you have questions about the flu shot clinic or you’d like to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider at Rushford Clinic, call (507) 864-7726.
