Despite the warmer weather lately, it’s not too early to start thinking about getting a flu shot. Already, there have been several reported cases of Influenza A including a pediatric case in Knox County. The Knox County Health Department will once again host several community flu shot clinics. All of the clinics are on a walk-in basis, no appointment is needed.
At each community clinic, flu shots will be available for adults and children, ages 6 mos. and older. Medicaid, Medicare and most forms of insurance will be accepted for payment. Otherwise, the cost for the flu shot is $35 and can be paid in cash or by check. Clinic attendees need to bring their ID and medical/insurance card. (more)
