Public Health Offering Flu Clinic as Part of Training Exercise

Johnson County Public Health will be having an all-day flu clinic along with an emergency preparedness exercise on Wednesday, October 2nd.

The exercise will help public health staff to prepare for an emergency in which the entire county has to be vaccinated.
Their goal during the exercise and flu clinic is to give 200 vaccines during the day.

The cost for the vaccine is $25, or they can bill Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, or Medicare/Medicaid.

The flu clinic/exercise will be Wednesday from 8am to 5pm, and they will be open during the lunch hour.
Those who participate can win a $100 Amazon Gift Card, and receive swag and treats as well.

The Center For Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, suggests as many people as possible get the vaccine annually, but especially those at high-risk of complications from the flu.
Those include Adults 65 and older; those with asthma, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or cancer, and children with neurological conditions; pregnant women; and young children.
