We are offering seasonal flu vaccine on a walk-in basis Monday – Friday 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 2:00PM until 5:00 PM.
We can bill Group Health, Medicare and Medicaid (Medicaid for ages 19 years and up only). We will attempt to bill other private insurances. Cost for the shot is $25, the Flumist is $35.
We offer pediatric vaccine for ages 6 months to 35 months. We also have vaccine for older children, pregnant women, adults and seniors.
We have on order the new “HD” vaccine which is an option for ages 65 years and up. It is the same, but much more concentrated in the hopes of providing a better immune response in older persons.
This Saturday, 7 November, we will be administering the last of our current stock of 175 doses of seasonal flu vaccines (with preservatives) for ages 4 and up. They will be available on a walk-in basis from 9am-12pm, or until they are gone, whichever comes first. If you miss out on this round, we expect to get more in at the end of the month.
We also have 30 doses left of the preservative-free pediatric seasonal vaccine for ages 6 months – 36 months and 5 doses of FluMist left. Stop on by the retail pharmacy this Saturday for your seasonal flu vaccine!
What we have:
We are down to 4 doses of FluMist, so if you’re interested in getting one, let us know!
What we’re still waiting for:
The large shipment of seasonal vaccines we are expecting is Fluzone brand – it is for ages 3 years and up and contains Thimerasol (which is a mercury perservative). We will also be getting 50 doses of preservative free vaccines for ages 18 years and up.
Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the pediatric vaccines as well as the novel H1N1 vaccines for high risk groups. We’ll keep you updated as to when those are in.
Calling all paramedics.
If you are a paramedic, we do have some novel H1N1 FluMist available. I repeat, this is for paramedics only, so if you’re not a paramedic, please do not inquire about the H1N1 until we tell you we have it available. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.
Check back for further updates.
