Influenza vaccinations will be available at special clinics Oct. 7 and 12 at Jefferson Community Health & Life Fairbury Clinic.
The CDC recommends influenza vaccinations for everyone 6 months and older. Influenza vaccinations are especially important during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. October is the optimal time to receive your vaccination.
Special influenza vaccination clinics will be offered at JCH&L Fairbury Clinic on Friday, Oct. 7, and Wednesday, Oct. 12, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling 402-587-5188. Please be prepared to leave your name, a phone number where you can be reached, and which day you would like to have an influenza vaccine appointment. COVID booster appointments may be made on the same line.
When you arrive for your appointment, please use JCH&L’s new main entrance, accessible from H Street. Influenza vaccines will be given in the Clinic Conference room.
Influenza vaccines will also be available at JCH&L Fairbury Clinic at regular clinic appointments or at a vaccine appointment beginning Oct. 10. Call 402-729-3361, option 1, for an appointment.
When you come to your appointment, please wear clothing which allows easy access to your arm. Bring your health insurance card and a photo ID. Most major insurances and Medicare cover the influenza vaccine. There will be a fee the day of your vaccination if you are a private pay patient.
Children 18 and under covered by Medicaid can’t get their influenza vaccines at these clinics. Please contact Blue Valley Community Action’s vaccination program at 402-826-2141, extension 3, for information on flu shots at BVCA shot clinics.
