Health department schedules vaccine clinics

MOORE — The Cleveland County Health Department announced last week its seasonal influenza vaccination clinic schedule for the upcoming flu season. Clinics will continue until Nov. 1. Clinic days and times are as follows:

Moore: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon Friday with an 8 a.m. 5 p.m. clinic Nov. 1.

The flu vaccine will be available for anyone who wants to be protected from influenza. The shot is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. Persons at high risk of serious complications from the flu are strongly encouraged to get the flu vaccine, including pregnant women and people with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung disease or other chronic conditions. Parents and family members of babies less than 6 months of age and people who live with or care for anyone at high risk for complications from the flu, including health care workers, should also get the vaccine.

“Flu can be a dangerous disease for people of all ages, even healthy children and adults,” said Beverly Bymun, nursing manager for the Cleveland County Health Department. “We encourage everyone in Cleveland County to protect themselves and their families by getting their annual flu shot.”

The Cleveland County Health Department will provide flu vaccine using the following fee schedule:

· No charge for families whose income is less than 185 percent of the federal poverty level.

· No charge for adults 65 years of age and older

· No charge for children who have no health insurance, or are on SoonerCare or are Native American or Alaskan natives, or children whose insurance does not cover vaccines.

· Children and adults with health insurance that covers vaccines and those with incomes above 185 percent of the poverty level will be charged a fee of $25.00 for flu vaccine to cover the cost of the vaccine and the cost of administering the vaccine.
