Seasonal Flu Clinic Scheduled

Flu

It is not too late to get a flu shot for protection against the seasonal flu (not H1N1) which typically does not peak until January or later.  The North Shore Health Department  will get the last of its vaccine order sometime this week.  A clinic has been scheduled for the seasonal flu shot  for adults:

Wednesday, December 9

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Brown Deer Village Hall

4800 W. Green Brook Drive

Brown Deer

H1N1 vaccine will NOT be available at this clinic.  If you want an H1N1 flu shot, you can attend one of the H1N1 clinics that have been scheduled for the general public:  www.browndeerwi.org/brown-deer-services.cfm

Unlike the H1N1 flu, the seasonal flu causes more complications in people older than 65 years.  So take the time to protect yourself or the older people in your life. 

The cost of a seasonal flu shot is $30.00, cash or check.  If you have Medicare Part B, the Health Department can bill Medicare and there is no cost to you.  If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan such as Secure Horizon, Humana, Medicare Advantage, etc., you must get your flu shot from your doctor. 

If you have questions, call the North Shore Health Department at 414-371-2980.  Visit the following website for more information about seasonal flu:  www.cdc.gov/flu
