The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends annual flu shots for everyone older than 6 months of age. According to the CDC, “An annual flu vaccination is the first and most important step in protecting against flu and its potentially serious complications. Millions of people have safely received flu vaccines for decades. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.”
Annual flu vaccinations are available at the Nurse Managed Primary Care Center.
The NMPCC offers:
- Tetanus Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap)
- Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B.
Unless covered by your health insurance plan, or required by and paid for by your department, the cost of immunizations is due at the time of appointment. A receipt can be provided for you to submit to your insurer upon request.
