Once again, the Webster County Health Unit in Marshfield is urging residents to get an annual influenza vaccination to protect against seasonal flu.
The health unit now is offering flu shots during normal business hours, 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. on weekdays.
No appointment is necessary as vaccinations are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Terre Banks, administrator at the health unit on 233 East Washington Street in Marshfield, said vaccine is available for children starting at 6 months old and for adults, whether they are insured, uninsured or underinsured.
“We are able to offer no-cost flu vaccinations to uninsured or underinsured adults while the supply lasts, and select insurance plans and Medicare can be billed,” Banks said.
“If you would want to self pay for the flu vaccine, prices are $27 for pediatric or adult standard four-strain vaccine and $52 for the high-dose, four-strain flu vaccine (for seniors age 65 and older).”
