VNA Flu Clinics
Flu season is right around the corner! A flu immunization is the best way to protect you and your family from this potentially deadly disease. When you get your flu immunization from Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), all proceeds are reinvested to support VNA services for vulnerable individuals in our local communities.
VNA offers flu immunizations through community clinics at VNA Headquarters at 12565 West Center Road starting Sept. 16. The clinics at VNA Headquarters are held from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. every Monday through Thursday; no appointment is necessary.
VNA flu immunizations are available to anyone, including seniors and children six months of age and older. Immunizations are administered by a knowledgeable VNA registered nurse, using temperature-monitored vaccine management to assure vaccine integrity. This year, VNA is offering the quadrivalent or four strain vaccine flu shot.
At this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone six months and older in the United States get a flu vaccination, but it is particularly important for people at high risk of complications from influenza. It’s best to be vaccinated before the end of October, since it can take two weeks for the antibodies in your body to provide protection from the flu.
In addition to the community clinics, VNA offers workplace clinics, and is still accepting new businesses. On-site clinics offer an increased convenience so more employees are likely to get their flu vaccine. The flu can be costly for businesses. Offering an on-site flu clinic decreases absences and overall healthcare costs for the organization, thus improving productivity while promoting health and wellness.
