Health department offers $10 flu vaccine

ST. GEORGE – The Southwest Utah Public Health Department is encouraging anyone who missed getting vaccinated for the 2011-2012 flu season to take advantage of $10 flu vaccine.

“Although we have seen some hospitalized cases of influenza in the state, there hasn’t been much flu activity in southwestern Utah yet, “ said Dr. David Blodgett, SWUPHD Director. “There is still time to get vaccinated and build up immunity before it hits our area. We’re offering flu vaccine for all ages at a reduced rate in hopes that we can get even more people immunized.”

The $10 price includes all types of flu vaccine – shot, high-dose for seniors, and nasal spray. There is no charge with the following insurances: Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, PEHP, SelectHealth, DMBA, and Tall Tree Administrators.
