FDL County Health Department Encouraging Residents to Get Flu Vaccine

The fall season is now underway, and the Fond du Lac County
Health Department is encouraging residents to get the flu vaccine. The department
began conducting public flu vaccine clinics last week – and will begin holding
school-based flue vaccine clinics starting the week of October 14th.
Walk-ins to get the flu vaccine at the health department offices will start in
mid-October. Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says getting the
flu vaccine is the best way to prevent the spread of the disease and lessen its
impact, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone
age six months and older receive the vaccine.

The Health Department offers the standard flu vaccine for $30,
and a High Dose option that’s licensed for people over age 65 for $75. People
are asked to bring their current insurance card to the flu shot to bill your
health insurance or Medicare or Medicaid. The next public flu clinic will be
held Tuesday from 9 until 10 am at the National Exchange Bank on south Main
Street in Fond du Lac, with two more scheduled for Thursday in Campbellsport
and in Brandon.
