September 13th and 14th
The best way to prevent getting influenza is to get your annual flu shot. The Utah County Health Department (UCHD) is offering flu shots starting at $24 in all their clinics (Provo, American Fork and Payson), as well as at community various clinics next week.
On Thursday, September 13th, the UCHD will be at the Mapleton Senior Center (125 W Community Center Way) from 10 a.m. to noon, and then the Eagle Mountain City Council Chambers (1650 E Stagecoach Run) from 3 to 5 p.m.
On Friday, September 14th, the UCHD will hold clinics in Lehi. From 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. nurses will be at the Lehi Senior Center (439 W 300 N) and from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. they will be at Lehi Elementary.
Due to recent outbreaks, the UCHD will also be taking Pertussis vaccine (along with most other vaccinations for adults and children) to our flu immunization clinics. The UCHD will also be offering high dose flu for seniors ($40 if paid at time of service), pneumonia ($70) and Tdap (if no insurance $14) vaccines. We also offer Vaccine for Children (VFC) for kids that qualify. For complete list of times and locations, please see www.UtahCountyHealth.org/FluShots or call 801-851-7025.
