Flu "Shoot-Outs" Planned for Southwest Utah
The Southwest Utah Public Health Department will be holding its annual Flu Shoot-Outs for the five-county district starting in September.
It is currently recommended that everyone over six months of age get immunized; although young children, pregnant women, people over 65 years of age, and anyone with chronic health problems are especially encouraged to do so. Flu activity varies each year, often starting in the fall and peaking in February. Getting vaccinated is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
Flu vaccine is $18 ($25 for nasal spray version). Cash, check, and credit cards accepted. There is NO CHARGE for the vaccine with proof of the following insurances: Medicare HMO, Medicaid, CHIP, PEHP, Selecthealth, Altius, Arches, DMBA, UnitedHealthcare, and Tall Tree.
You can save time by printing the consent form found below. Fill it out and bring it to the Shoot-Out. Don't forget to wear a short-sleeved shirt!
