Seasonal flu shots are encouraged for anyone age six months and older. This is also true for people who care for children under age six months and people with health conditions.
Fillmore County Public Health is offering shots that protect against four flu types. Flu shots will only be available at 902 Houston Street, NW in Preston on the following dates:
• Monday, October 9 from 1-7 p.m. (Lower Level, Room 108)

The cost of each flu vaccination is $30.00. Adults with Medicare Part B and/or Medicare Advantage Plans and all Minnesota Health Care Plan members may receive flu shots free of charge when all health insurance cards are presented at the clinic. Shots are also available for people without insurance or whose insurance does not cover the cost of vaccine.
To best serve you, wear a short sleeve shirt and bring your health insurance cards or payment. For more details about vaccinations, call Fillmore County Public Health at (507) 765-3898.
