Aurora VNA Adds Seasonal Flu Vaccination Clinics to Meet High Demand

Dec. 2, 2009

A high demand for the seasonal flu vaccine has led the Aurora Visiting Nurse Association to schedule additional flu clinics throughout the Greater Milwaukee area.

“Demand for the seasonal flu vaccine has been high,” said Lisa Taylor, R.N., coordinator of the VNA’s Shoo the Flu clinics. “The seasonal flu usually does not peak until January or February, so people still have plenty of time to get a seasonal flu shot.”

The clinics will take place at community locations throughout eastern Wisconsin.

Cost for a seasonal flu vaccination is $30 when paying by cash or check, and pneumonia shots are $45. Medicare Part B and Medicaid are accepted as payment.

Aurora Health Care has a single flu Web site that provides background information about the seasonal flu and H1N1 flu as well as where you can find flu immunizations throughout Aurora. Just log on to www.Aurora.org/flu to find an Aurora Pharmacy, doctor’s office, Aurora QuickCare or Aurora Visiting Nurse Association Shoo the Flu clinic near you.
