CHI Memorial Offers Drive-Through Flu Vaccine Clinics

Friday, October 20, 2017

CHI Memorial Convenient Care locations in Signal Mountain, and LaFayette, will host drive-through flu vaccine clinics on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 8 a.m. - noon.  Regular flu vaccines will be available, as well as the high dose vaccine for those age 65 and older.  Most insurance companies will pay 100% of the cost.

  The vaccine is $25 for those who don’t have insurance.

 

No appointment is necessary to receive the flu vaccine.  You must be fever free to get the vaccine.  Anyone who gets the flu shot will be asked to wait about 15 minutes after receiving the shot to make sure there are no adverse reactions.  

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone age 6 months old and older get a flu vaccine each year. Once you receive the vaccine, it takes about two weeks for your body to develop antibodies and provide protection against the flu.  Flu activity usually peaks between December and February, according to the CDC.

 

CHI Memorial Convenient Care – Signal Mountain will offer the flu vaccine to people age 16 and older.  The practice is at 238 Taft Highway, Suite 170, Signal Mountain, Tn. 37377.

 

CHI Memorial Convenient Care – LaFayette will offer the flu vaccine to people age 5 and older.  The practice is at 615 East Villanow Street, LaFayette, Ga. 30728.
