Influenza is a common disease that can be serious and even life threatening. Despite recent research study concerns about the effectiveness of influenza vaccine, it is still the most useful tool we have to protect people from becoming ill. Influenza vaccinations are safe and instrumental in preventing the flu, especially when combined with good personal hygiene practices such as covering your cough, washing your hands, and staying home when ill.

Fillmore County Public Health is now offering seasonal influenza vaccinations for people aged six months and older by appointment at their office located on 902 Houston Street NW, Preston. Appointments are now being taken for Friday, November 4, 2011, from 8:30 to 11:30 AM.

The cost of the flu vaccination is $25.00 each. Adults with Medicare Part B, and both adults and children with a Minnesota Health Care Plan can receive the flu vaccination free of charge if their insurance cards are presented at the clinic.

To make your experience quicker, wear a short sleeve shirt and bring your insurance card or other payment to your appointment. For more information about flu vaccinations or to make an appointment, call Fillmore County Public Health at 507-765-3898.
