Fulton County flu shot schedule 9.16.09

Written by David Green.

The Fulton County Health Department has released its flu shot clinic schedule for vaccination against seasonal flu—not the H1N1 virus. The new vaccine for H1N1 will be released at a later date.

Children and their parents will be able to get flu vaccinations during regularly scheduled immunization clinics when vaccine becomes available from Ohio Department of Health. Childhood immunization clinics are scheduled every Friday morning from 8:30 a.m. to noon and the first and third Thursday of the month from 2 to 6 p.m.

The cost of flu vaccine for children 6 months through 18 years of age is $10.

Flu Shots and FluMist will be provided on a walk-in basis as follows:

• Sept. 24, Wauseon, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Fulton County Health Department, 606 S. Shoop Ave.

• Sept. 29, Archbold, noon to 5:30 p.m., Archbold Public Library, 205 Stryker St.

• Sept. 30, Metamora, 1:00 to 6 p.m., Evergreen Community Library, 253 Maple St.

• Oct. 7, Wauseon Senior Center, 240 Clinton St., 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

• Oct. 8, Swanton, noon to 5:30 p.m., Swanton Public Library, 305 Chestnut St.

• Oct.13, Fayette, 1 to 5:30 p.m. at the Fayette Opera House, 105 E. Main Street.

• Oct. 15, Lyons, noon to 5:30 p.m., Lyons Fire Hall, W. Morenci St.

• Oct. 20, Delta, noon to 5:30 p.m., Delta Open Door, 104 Monroe St.

Beginning Oct. 14, vaccinations will be given to anyone age 19 and above during “nursing hours” every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. until supplies are gone.

A drive-through clinic is available by appointment for anyone who has difficulty standing or for children who require a wheelchair for mobility. A drive-through clinic is scheduled at the health center from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Sept. 24.

The cost of the flu shot is $20 for adults and $10 for children through age 18 years, but no one will be turned away because of inability to pay. Medicare Plan B will cover the cost for those over 65 years of age.

This is vaccine for seasonal flu and will not protect you from Pandemic H1N1 (Swine) flu. Pandemic H1N1 shot clinics will be published when the vaccine is available.

The health department will also offer FluMist, an intranasal vaccine, to healthy individuals between the ages of 2 and 49 years.  This may be of interest to those who want to protect themselves from the flu but fear getting a shot. The cost of the FluMist vaccination is the same as the flu shot.
