CHI Memorial Convenient Care Locations Host Flu Vaccine Clinic

Friday, October 19, 2018

All four CHI Memorial Convenient Care locations will host a flu vaccine clinic on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  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 percent of the cost.  The regular vaccine is $35 for those who do not have insurance.  The high dose vaccine is $65 for those who do not have insurance. 
 
No appointment is necessary to receive the flu vaccine.  You must be fever free to receive 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 recommends everyone age six 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 – Atrium will offer the flu vaccine to people age two and older.  The practice is located in the Atrium Medical Center Building 1, 1949 Gunbarrel Road, Suite 200, Chattanooga, TN 37421.
 
CHI Memorial Convenient Care – Signal Mountain will offer the flu vaccine to people age 16 and older.  The practice is located at 238 Taft Highway, Suite 170, Signal Mountain, TN 37377.
 
CHI Memorial Convenient Care – Cleveland will offer the flu vaccine to people age four and older.  The practice is located in the Publix Shopping Center, 645 Paul Huff Parkway NW, Ste. 105, Cleveland, TN 37312.
 
CHI Memorial Convenient Care – LaFayette will offer the flu vaccine to people age five and older.  The practice is located at 615 East Villanow Street, LaFayette, GA 30728.
 
CHI Memorial Convenient Care locations provide urgent medical care for many common conditions including allergies and asthma, fevers and flu and stitches and sprains. There’s no need to make an appointment, and the staff will coordinate with your personal physician to ensure you receive follow-up care.
