HOLIDAY FLU CLINICS
LENOWISCO Health District provides flu vaccine in the community

(WISE, Virginia) - Holidays give us a special opportunity for spending time with our families. Making sure that our families are healthy is a special way of showing that we care. During the month of December, encourage family members to get their annual flu vaccine if they have not received it yet this year. It’s still not too late to get a seasonal flu vaccine. Historically, the highest flu activity in our area tends to occur in the latter winter months of January, February and March.

In order to make getting a flu vaccine more convenient, the LENOWISCO Health District has scheduled several community flu vaccination clinics during the month of December:

Wednesday  Dec. 1 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Food Country, Duffield
Wednesday  Dec. 1 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Payless, Appalachia
Thursday Dec. 2 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Big M, St. Paul
Friday Dec. 3 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Payless, Coeburn
Saturday Dec. 4 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Roses, St. Paul
Saturday Dec. 4 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Food Country, Duffield
Thursday Dec. 9 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Advance Auto, Pennington Gap
Saturday  Dec. 11 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. IGA, Pennington Gap
Monday Dec. 13 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. IGA, Jonesville
Wednesday Dec. 15 1 to 4 p.m. Food Lion, Gate City
Thursday Dec. 16 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. IGA, Weber City

Influenza vaccine at the community clinics will be offered at a reduced price of $20. The LENOWISCO Health District is a participating provider with the following insurance companies:  Virginia Medicaid, Medicare, UMWA, Black Lung, Anthem and Tennessee BC/BS. These insurance companies may be billed for flu vaccine if a copy of the insurance card is presented at the community flu clinics.
