FLU CLINICS TO BE HELD AT CRAVEN COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT
Craven County - Craven County Health Department will be providing an express flu clinic on Friday November 1, 2013 from 8am to 11:00 am and Friday November 8th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Please call (252) 636-4920 to schedule your appointment. Flu vaccine is also offered by appointment during our business hours between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday. The price for our flu vaccine this year is $25.00; however Medicare, Medicaid and Blue Cross Blue Shield will be accepted.
The single best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu vaccine each season. Influenza viruses are always changing, so annual vaccination is recommended. Each year scientists try to match the viruses in the vaccine to those most likely to cause flu that year.
The 2013-2014 vaccine provides protection against influenza A (H1N1) viruses, influenza A (H3N2) viruses, and influenza B viruses.
The timing of flu is very unpredictable and can vary from season to season. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the U.S. in January or February. However, seasonal flu activity can begin as early as October and continue to occur as late as May.
For more information, please feel free to contact Elizabeth Junak at (252) 626-4920 ext. 2128 or at email@example.com.
