Posted: 9/29/2014

White Medical Clinic will offer the flu vaccine on Wednesday, Oct. 8 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and again on Monday, Oct. 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“The CDC recommends that everyone who is at least six months of age receive an annual influenza vaccination,” said PA Karen Bumann. “It is especially recommended for individuals who have a high risk of developing serious complications, like pneumonia, if they get sick with the flu. This includes people with certain medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease, pregnant women, and people age 65 and older.”

Cost is $25 with no out-of-pocket costs for Medicare eligible patients. Walk-ins are welcomed for the flu vaccine clinic. Vaccinations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
