Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic Today

(Robinson) – If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet this year, the Crawford County Health Department is making it as easy as possible. They will be set up today in the parking lot of Baymont Hotel just west of the health department, from 4-6:30 pm for an adults-only drive-thru clinic. Public health managers remind those getting a shot that it typically takes about two weeks after vaccination for the shot to reach full effectiveness. There is a charge for the seasonal flu shot. Medicare, Medicaid, and several insurance companies can be billed for flu vaccinations for those persons presenting appropriate cards. Residents with questions about flu vaccination, scheduling, or insurance coverage should call the CCHD at 544-8798.
