Logansport Memorial Hospital to offer community flu shots

Flu vaccination shots for all ages will be offered at a community-wide clinic, sponsored by Logansport Memorial Hospital and the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation. Information about the flu shot clinic is listed below:

Date: Wednesday, October 14, 2015
Time: 3 – 7 pm
Location: Crosswind United Methodist Church, Logansport
Cost:  $15 each, cash only

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu season can begin as early as October. Getting a flu vaccine protects you against the four most highly anticipated strains of influenza for up to one year. The CDC encourages everyone over the age of 6 months to get vaccinated. Children age 8 and under should see a physician for flu shots, and youth ages 9-17 will need a doctor’s order to receive one at the clinic that day.

If you have questions about receiving a flu vaccine or about the free clinic, please call the Logansport Memorial Hospital Flu Hotline at (574) 753-1799. 

Special thanks to the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation for making this community flu shot clinic possible.
