Pennsylvanians can receive low- or no-cost flu shots
Clinics will be hosted throughout Pennsylvania to serve people who are uninsured or underinsured, whether they are American Indian, Alaska Native, or Medicaid eligible. These include children and adults.
"I want all Pennsylvanians to know it's not too late to get vaccinated, and I am urging everyone who is eligible to take advantage of the free flu vaccines we are offering this week across the commonwealth," Pennsylvania Health Secretary Karen Murphy said. "Getting vaccinated now against the flu will help everyone stay healthy throughout the holidays and into the New Year."
The vaccines cost $5 per person, but nobody will be rejected if they cannot afford to pay.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against influenza disease," Murphy said. "With family and friends gathering for the holidays, now is a great time to get a flu vaccine to protect yourself and your loved ones."
