Louisville Slugger Flu Shot Clinic to be Held Sunday

Wednesday October 31, 2007

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (October 31, 2007) The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness will hold its annual Louisville Slugger walk-in flu shot clinic for the general public this Sunday, Nov. 4.

The clinic will take place Sunday, November 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the concourse of Louisville Slugger Field located at 401 East Main Street.

Flu shots will be available to anyone six months of age or older who wants to avoid getting the flu this winter. No appointments are necessary. 

Flu shots are $25. Medicare Part B and Passport will cover the cost for those with those insurance plans. The Public Health and Wellness Department never turns anyone away because of inability to pay.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) especially recommends that the following people who are at high-risk for complications from the flu get a shot.

  • People age 50 and older
  • Children ages six months to 5 years old 
  • Household members and caretakers of infants younger than six months of age
  • Pregnant women
  • People with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and asthma
  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Children six months to 18 years of age on long-term aspirin therapy
