The Clinic hours are 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Noon). There is still time to register for the October 11th clinic.
Lots of questions floating around regarding what the acceptable practice is
for receiving any vaccinations if you have recently been ill. As you know, the Flu
Clinic registration form clearly indicates that if you have a fever or are feeling ill,
you are advised not to receive any injection regardless of whether it’s for Flu,
Pneumonia, RSV, COVID, Shingles, etc. Because COVID has been rearing its ugly
head in the region, I went to my source and posed that very question to the
pharmacist at Walgreens. “The only time that we cannot vaccinate is if they are
actively sick with COVID and for 14 days after they test positive due to risk of
transmitting the infection. Or, for 3 months after if they required hospitalization
and were treated at the hospital with antibody therapy which is rare.” “To clarify,
they will be able to get any of the vaccines at the clinic as long as they didn’t test
positive on or after 09/27/2023.” Hopefully this dispels any misinformation
Please remember that if you had a change to your insurance coverage since
last year, YOU DO NEED TO PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION IMMEDIATELY IN ORDER FOR US TO BILL THE PROPER INSURANCE CARRIER AND AVOID ANY UNCOVERED SERVICES.
There is a strong possibility that we will have the New COVID Booster too.
Just waiting for confirmation on the delivery date. Stay tuned!
