Livingston County Health Center to offer influenza vaccine

Doctor Giving Flu Shot

Livingston County Health Center has announced an upcoming opportunity for county residents to receive their vaccination for influenza for the 2020-2021 flu season.   A Curbside Family Flu Shot Clinic will be held on Wednesday, October 14th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in their parking lot at 800 Adam Drive.

County residents 6 months of age and older can get vaccinated at the clinic. Residents 65 and older should bring their Medicare card to the clinic and those with private insurance should bring their card as well.  Those without insurance can still get vaccinated at no out of pocket cost.  

To expedite the appointment, those signing up for appointments can access fillable, printable authorization forms on the Livingston County Health Center website.  County residents should complete the form, print it, and bring along to the clinic to decrease the amount of time waiting. 

The CDC recommends anyone 6 months or older receive an annual influenza vaccination.  Experts think it will be even more important to get vaccinated this season, due to COVID-19 circulating at the same time.
