Essentia Health offers walk-in flu clinics, 10-minute appointments

Posted: September 24, 2013 - 5:27pm

In October, Essentia Health will provide two options for the community to be vaccinated against the flu by scheduling a 10-minute appointment at your local clinic or just stopping by during the walk-in flu clinic.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a flu vaccine for anyone who is 6 months old or older. Some children younger than age 9 need two doses to be protected, so ask your doctor.

The cost of a flu vaccine is covered by Medicare Part B, Medicaid and most private insurance companies.

Essentia Health clinics will offer 10-minute appointments for flu shot or flu mist starting Oct. 1 at all clinic locations. Call the clinic nearest you to schedule an appointment.
