With fall right around the corner, the Shelby County Health Department wants you to be preparing for flu season. The department has received its supply of flu vaccines for the year, and they are offering those vaccines to the public.
Jennifer Beeson is the Communicable Disease Coordinator at the Shelby County Health Department. She says the vaccine they have this year protects against multiple strains of the flu.
Beeson says although there is a small charge for the shot, they can bill Medicare, Medicaid, or your insurance company.
You can get your flu shot at the Shelby County Health Department anytime between 8 and 11:30 a.m. or 1 and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
