Oswego County Health Department Schedules Flu Clinic in West Monroe
WEST MONROE -- The Oswego County Health Department will hold a flu clinic Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the West Monroe Town Hall, 46 Co. Rte. 11. Flu shots will be given by appointment only.
Residents may schedule an appointment on line, or by calling the Oswego County Health Department weekdays at 349-3547 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 3547 between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Clinics are also held every Friday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Nick Sterio Public Health Clinic, 70 Bunner St., Oswego, and the first and third Friday of the month from 9 to 11 a.m. at the H. Douglas Barclay Courthouse, Pulaski.
Anyone who wants to reduce their risk of flu can receive a flu shot. Kathleen Smith, Public Health Director, said people in high risk groups are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated in October or November, so they will be protected before the flu season peaks.
Both flu and pneumonia vaccine will be available at the clinic. People who are covered by Medicaid or Medicare Part B must bring their cards to the clinic. There is a $30 charge for a flu shot and a $45 charge for a pneumonia shot. It is the policy of the Oswego County Health Department that no one will be turned away if they can't afford to pay.
