Flu shots available

The Northeast Texas Public Health District has started offering  flu vaccinations at their location at 815 N. Broadway.  Special NETPHD Immunization Clinic hours have been established and are Monday – Thursday 8am – 11am and 1pm – 4pm and Wednesday until 6pm.
The seasonal flu vaccination will be given on a first come, first serve basis until the vaccine supply is depleted.
The cost for the flu vaccination is $20.00 per person and the cost for the flu mist is $25.00 per person.  Medicaid and Medicare Part B will be accepted.  Children who are uninsured or underinsured and qualify for the Vaccines for Children Program will be charged $8.00.
According to Dr. Jonathan MacClements, Smith County Health Authority, “The simplest and safest protection against the influenza virus, recommended by the CDC is vaccination.  People at increased risk for complications from the flu should get the vaccine as early as possible.”
Please be aware that the seasonal flu vaccine is currently available and this flu vaccine will also protect against the H1N1 flu strain.  Therefore, only one flu shot is recommended.
For additional information, please contact the Northeast Texas Public Health District Immunizations Department at 903-510-5604 or visit us at www.healthyeasttx.org.
