Memo

Date: October 9, 2014

To: Staff and Clients/Families

From: September Stallings and Jeanne Lyle

Re: Flu Information

Flu season begins October 1st, following the flu vaccination; it takes approx. 2 weeks to build immunity.

In an effort to educate staff and clients/families regarding the flu and how to protect yourself and others against contracting and /or spreading the influenza virus, we are providing information about the flu. The attached information, distributed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is an excellent summary of information regarding this highly contagious virus. The information provides tips and general information about the flu for anyone, not just parents. We think it is a good resource for you. We encourage you to consider getting the vaccine. While getting the flu shot will not keep you from getting the flu, it will reduce the chances that you will get the flu. We also encourage you to talk with your family physician if you have concerns about whether you or family members should be vaccinated against the flu.

 

Most physicians’ offices and many local pharmacies e.g. Ingle's pharmacy, Walgreen, Kmart pharmacy, Rite Aid, and CVS are giving the flu shot for a minimal cost during business hours. Most insurance companies allow an insured person to receive the shot at no cost to him or herself. You would need to take your insurance information with you in most cases. Pharmacies may be capable of pulling up your insurance information using your name and date of birth. Appointments are not necessary to receive the flu vaccine at your local pharmacy.

CVS, Walgreen & Rite-Aid have it for $31.99, persons over 65 require a stronger dose and the cost maybe different, no appointment is needed at the pharmacies.

 

Other agencies are also giving the flu shot.

Blue Ridge Urgent Care tells us the cost is around $32.00 with them, an appointment is needed.

Call your local Health Department for availability and cost.
