Drive Through Flu Shot Clinic Canceled
Due to an unanticipated delay in flu vaccine shipments, the Cascade City-County Health Department regrets to inform residents that the Drive Through Community Flu Shot Clinic that was scheduled for September 16th is cancelled.
“We are very disappointed that we will not be able to hold the Drive Through Flu Shot Clinic this year and apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused our community,” says Tanya Houston, Health Officer for CCHD. She goes on to say, “We will still be holding our walk in clinic on September 23rd and will be expanding our capacity to help meet the increased demand that this cancellation could cause. We encourage everyone to come visit us at the walk in clinic.”
Annual vaccination is the safest and most effective method to prevent influenza, and it is recommended for everyone six months of age and older. The Walk In Flu Shot Clinic makes it easy and convenient, and will be held on Tuesday, September 23rd from noon to 5 p.m. at the Exhibition Hall at MT Expo Park. “Patrons will enjoy a friendly atmosphere while they complete their registration and immunization,” Houston said. Then, they can relax in the coffee corner and enjoy a free cup of coffee.
The cost of the flu shot is $30 for adults and $21 for children. Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, Healthy Montana Kids, and other insurances, cash, check, or credit will all be accepted at the clinic. CCHD asks that people present any and all insurance cards they may have.
