Wednesday, Sept. 30
9 a.m. - 2 p.m. • SCB
The CDC and the FDA highly recommend people age 65 and older receive one of these two flu vaccines: the FLUAD or the High Dose Flu Vaccine.
This year's new flu vaccine, FLUAD, recommended for people 65 and older, will be available at the Flu Shot Clinic. FLUAD is formulated with an ingredient that helps create a stronger immune response to vaccination and a large supply is available. The High Dose Flu Vaccine will also be available, but quantities may be limited due to a reduced supply from the drug manufacturers.
The Standard Dose Flu Vaccine will be available for those under the age of 65.
Insurance & Payment
Medicare and other insurances may pay for the flu vaccine. Bring your Medicare or insurance card to the clinic. All insurance forms will be submitted by Walgreens. If you have a New Medicare Card and a Medicare Advantage Plan Card -- Bring Both. All insurance forms are submitted by Walgreens.
Look for the vaccine consent forms next to the flu vaccine posters at all monitors desks starting Monday, Sept. 16.
NOTE: If you are not sure whether or not you should receive this vaccine or which dose, please check with your physician.
* Shots for Pneumonia will no longer be offered. That is a vaccine only needed once,
not annually, so it is best to have it done at your doctor's office.
