Broome County Health Department Announces Flu Clinics
The Broome County Health Department has announced its 2013 Flu Vaccine Clinic schedule for this fall. The clinics will be open to anyone ages three and up.
The vaccine is $25 payable by cash or check. If you are 65 years of age or older and subscribe to traditional Medicare Part B, Excellus Medicare Blue PPO, Today’s Options or CDPHP Medicare the health department will bill your insurance plan. Pneumonia shots will also be offered at the flu clinics for traditional Medicare Part B recipients aged 65 and older.
If your child’s immunizations are covered by medical insurance, parents are advised to seek flu vaccinations for them at their regular medical provider. This can help cut down on out of pocket costs, especially for children who require a second dose of the vaccine because of their age.
If your child’s immunizations are not covered by insurance, call the Broome County Health Department at 607.778.2839 to schedule an appointment for the flu vaccine. The health department offers immunizations for uninsured children at low or no cost.
Flu Clinics will be held at the Broome County Health Department, 225 Front Street, Binghamton from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
