Flu Shots Available in Denison

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX -- Flu shots are now available in Denison and this year only one shot is needed for protection against both the seasonal and H1N1 virus. Deeda Payton reports.

The signs are up at the Grayson County Health Department in Denison and walk-ins are welcome. Flu shots are available for $25 cash. The health department also accepts Medicaid and Medicare Part B, but no HMOs.

Spokesperson Amanda Ortez says they urge residents to go ahead and come in before the lines get long. "This year instead of waiting in line go ahead and get in early and get your influenza vaccine that includes the h1n1 because this year you'll only need to receive one shot and not two," said Ortez.
