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!
We have 75 doses of the seasonal flu vaccine (with preservatives) for ages 4 years through adults available. If you haven’t gotten one yet this year, come on by the retail store between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday or 9am-4pm on Saturday.
We also have preservative-free pediatric vaccines for ages 6 months to 36 months. If this is your child’s first vaccine they will need two doses about a month apart, so let us know!
Still no word on when we will receive the H1N1 vaccine. According to an article I read in Time Magazine the government has backed off the original estimate of 120 million doses by mid-October. They have shipped out some (11 million) and are hoping to ship out another 50 million by mid-November and 150 million in mid-December. The flu virus in grown in chicken eggs and can be somewhat unreliable to culture causing delays in production. In the meantime, remember to wash your hands often, cover your coughs, stay home if you’re not feeling well, and avoid touching your eyes!
Now you know as much as I do about the current availability!
As promised (with fingers crossed!), we finally got a shipment of preservative-free, pediatric flu shots for children ages 6 months to 36 months. If this is the first year your child will be receiving a flu vaccination, they will need 2 doses approximately a month apart. Make sure you let us know if this is their first one!
Hours to receive flu shots are Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturday 9am-4pm. Feel free to stop in with your child during those business hours.
We are still waiting for our shipments of the seasonal flu vaccines for adults and the novel H1N1 vaccines. We appreciate your patience in this matter as we cannot control when and if our shipments will arrive due to the high demand. As always, we will keep you posted whenever we know something!
