(Neb.)-Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinic At Regional West This Saturday

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/20/2012 02:34 PM

(SCOTTSBLUFF)-Regional West Health Services and Regional West Physicians’ Clinic will hold their annual Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinic for Medicare patients on Saturday, September 22nd from 8:00-11:00 a.m. at Regional West Medical Plaza South.        
Paulette Schnell, RN, Community Health Nurse, says, “The Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinic was developed to make it as easy as possible for Medicare patients to get their flu shots, because they are one of the groups at higher risk for complications from the flu.”
“We hope every driver will gather up their friends and neighbors and drive-through so our nurses can give them a flu shot while they sit in the comfort and warmth of their cars. When they bring their Medicare Part B card, they get a flu shot at no cost to them,” she said.        
In addition to the drive-through clinic, Walk-In Flu Shot Clinics for adults and children will be held on three different dates at the Community Health office at St. Mary Plaza, 3700 Avenue B in Scottsbluff. The walk-in clinics will be held Saturday, October 13th from 8:00-10:00 a.m.; Thursday, October 25th from 3:00-7:00 p.m.; and Thursday, November 15th from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.        
Flu shots will cost $30 for adults who do not have health insurance. Insurance companies will be billed for adults who do have health insurance.         Medicare Part B will be billed for those who bring their cards to either the drive-through or walk-in clinics.        
For children six months to 18 years of age, flu shots are provided by appointment at the regularly scheduled Immunization Clinics and walk-in flu shot clinics. Nasal spray vaccinations will be available at the walk-in clinics. For those with insurance, insurance companies will be billed for childhood vaccinations; parents or guardians are asked to bring their insurance card.
To schedule an appointment, call 308-630-1126.
