FHN Offering Two Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinics
FHN is offering two easy, convenient drive-through seasonal flu shot clinics in October.
"If your last flu shot was before June 1, 2023, you need a new one for the coming season," said FHN Infection Preventionist Margie Kochsmier, MSN, RN, CMSRN, CIC.
This year's public drive-through flu shot clinics are:
Oct. 11, 3 - 6 p.m.; FHN Family Healthcare Center - Burchard Hills
Oct. 14, 8 - 10:30 a.m.; FHN Family Healthcare Center - Burchard Hills
At this year's public flu shot clinics, adults under 65 years of age will get a quadrivalent vaccine that protects against four strains of influenza for $32.
Persons 65 and over will receive a high-dose version of the four-strain vaccine ($70).
COVID-19 booster vaccines will NOT be available at this event.
Immunizations may be paid for by cash, credit card, or check payable to FHN. Per government regulations, no Medicaid cards can be accepted at these events. Receipts will be available to submit to individuals’ healthcare insurance provider for reimbursement.
There will be no out-of-pocket expense if you are covered by Medicare Part B (please present Medicare card) or a Medicare HMO accepted by FHN (list available at each location - covered persons MUST present the Medicare HMO card instead of the Medicare card for the billing process).
Please note that these prices are only available at these flu shot clinics; other rates may apply in FHN offices.
Children cannot receive their flu shot at any of the drive-through clinics, but FHN provider offices will have appropriate dosages for pediatric patients as well as for adults.
Because of federal guidelines to prevent identity theft, everyone must present a photo ID to receive an immunization. Participants are asked to wear a shirt or top that makes their upper arm easily accessible.
Persons with allergy to eggs or the flu vaccine, those with an illness accompanied by a fever or depressed immune system should not receive the flu immunization at these locations. For more information, call FHN Community Services at 815-599-7437.
