Flu Immunization Program

Home Health United nurses provide flu shot clinics for businesses, community based residential facilities, churches, senior centers and in a variety of public places. In 2003, we gave 50,000 shots. We also protect people with pneumonia immunizations.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that persons in "high risk" groups receive a flu shot during the month of October. If the supply of vaccine is adequate, other people may also be immunized during that month. Who should get a flu shot early? http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccinescreening.htm

Annual immunization is necessary since new strains of the flu virus appear each year.

The cost of the flu shot is $23 or Medicare B and Medicaid accepted. Bring your Medicare or Medicaid card and present it to the clinic volunteer. VISA and MasterCard also accepted.

Symptoms of the
flu include:

fever
aches
cough
and fatigue

Public clinics will begin in October. For a complete schedule of clinics click here.
