Flu shot clinics set

Tonawanda News — Flu shot clinics set

Assemblyman Robin Schimminger will be hosting flu shot clinics through the Visiting Nursing Association starting next week. 

“The Flu Prevention Campaign is an easy and cost effective way for seniors and others to maintain good health,” Schimminger, D-Kenmore, said. “The best way to prevent catching the flu is to get vaccinated.”

A flu shot clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday at Brighton Community Church, 1225 Brighton Road, Town of Tonawanda.

Another clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Knights of Columbus, 755 Erie Ave., North Tonawanda.

Appointments are required so that seniors do not have to stand in long lines and to ensure that enough serum can be ordered. 

Call the Assemblyman’s district office at 873-2540 to schedule an appointment.

The fee for a flu shot is $35. The following insurance will be accepted: Medicare Part B, Independent Health, Encompass 65, Univera, Senior Choice, Community Blue and Senior Blue. Proof of medical coverage or payment must be presented at the appointment.
