Flu-shot clinics coming up next week at county health department
Local residents still have ample opportunities to get their flu shots at Crawford County Health Department. Remaining clinic dates and times are:

• 4-7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6. All ages.

• 1-4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9. All ages.

• 1-4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13. All ages.

The department encourages flu vaccinations for everyone over six months of age.

During November and December vaccinations will also be provided every Monday morning from 8 to 11 a.m. during the department's regular "walk-in" clinics for adults and children. Persons wishing to be vaccinated who are unable to attend one of these organized clinics may call the Health Department to schedule an individual appointment. Special arrangements can be made to accommodate those with limited mobility.

CCHD will not provide nasal mist flu vaccinations again this season because of current recommendations from the Advisory Council on Immunization Practices. ACIP recommends shots instead for this season. "High-dose" vaccinations will be available upon request for those who are over 65 years old.

There is a charge for the seasonal flu shot. Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and several other insurance companies can be billed for flu vaccination for those persons presenting appropriate cards.

Residents with questions about flu vaccination, scheduling, or insurance coverage should call CCHD at 544-8798.
