LOW AND NO-COST FLU SHOTS FOR HEALTHLINC PATIENTS AVAILABLE NOW
Valparaiso, IN – HealthLinc clinics throughout Northwest Indiana are offering no- and low-cost flu shots to their patients throughout flu season. Flu shots will be available at no cost to any HealthLinc patient who has a check-up, well visit, or other appointment already scheduled.
For those HealthLinc patients that do not have another appointment already scheduled, the cost for a flu shot is $15. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
HealthLinc has clinics located throughout Northwest Indiana including East Chicago, Valparaiso, Knox, Michigan City, South Bend (IUSB Campus), and Mishawaka.
“We know that influenza activity increases in October, and we like to make sure the community is aware that we have flu shots available,” states HealthLinc CEO Beth Wrobel. “Each of our clinics is stocked with flu vaccines, and we are offering them at no-cost to our patients that may already be coming in for another appointment including vision and dental appointments.”
Flu vaccinations can prevent flu illnesses and flu-related hospitalizations. The CDC recommends an annual flu shot for everyone six months or older. It takes two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in.
