Flu Shots Available from the Grayson County Health Department

Posted:

GRAYSON CO. -- TX, The Texas Department of State Health Services and the Center for Disease Control are urging everyone to get their flu shots as soon as possible.  Adults and older children need one dose of influenza vaccine each year. But some children younger than 9 years of age may need two doses to be protected.

Medicaid for Adults and Children (6 months thru 18 years) will be accepted with current card. Medicare Part B will also be accepted with card, however; we can not accept insurance or HMO's. Flu shots will cost $25.00 for all others. Please no out of county checks.

The 2010-2011 vaccine provides protection against A/H1N1 (pandemic) influenza and two other influenza viruses-influenza A/H3N2 and influenza B. About two weeks after vaccination, antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection develop in the body. The ability of flu vaccine to protect a person depends on the age and health status of the person getting the vaccine. By getting vaccinated you can protect yourself from influenza and may also avoid spreading influenza to others.

Grayson County Health Department is providing flu shots in several locations in the weeks ahead. The clinics that will be open to the public are listed below.
