Extended Hours Announced For Flu Vaccines

Jasper (Local Sources) – The Dubois County Health Department is offering extended hours to provide pediatric and adult influenza vaccine.

The extended hours are on Wednesday, October 19th and November 2nd from 8-11am and 1-5:30pm.

Flu vaccine is also available daily from 8-11am and 1-3pm.

The nasal vaccine is not available.

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

By far, the single best way to prevent the flu is for individuals to get a vaccination each fall. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine.

Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.
