Public Health and Wellness to Begin Flu Shots October 1

Thursday September 18, 2008

Beginning October 1, the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness will offer flu shots to anyone age six months or older. Adequate vaccine supplies are expected.

Flu shots cost $30. The nasal flu mist costs $35. Medicare Part B and Passport will cover the cost for those with those insurance plans. The Department of Public Health and Wellness never turns anyone away because of inability to pay.   

Walk in Clinics

The Department of Public Health and Wellness will hold its annual Louisville Slugger Flu Shot Clinic at 401 E. Main Street on Sunday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is free parking and no appointments are necessary.

The Department of Public Health and Wellness will also hold numerous walk-in flu shot clinics in various locations throughout the community this year. Each of these clinics will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. No appointments are necessary for these clinics. Dates and locations are as follows:
