The flu vaccine is  available daily from 8-11AM and 1-3PM, but the vaccine is available this Wednesday during the extended hours of 8-11AM and 1-5:30PM.

The Health Department says the nasal vaccine is not available.

Private insurance, Medicaid and Medicare Part B are accepted as a method of payment.  All insurance cards must be presented at the time of service

The DCHD says the single best way to prevent the flu is for individuals to get a vaccination each fall.  The department also says everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine.

DCHD says flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.
