United Way and Lorain County Public Health Partner to Host Free Flu Shot Clinic on Nov. 4

Lorain County Public Health will conduct a free Flu Shot Clinic on Monday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at United Way of Greater Lorain County, 642 Broadway Ave in Lorain.

Anyone can catch the flu. The flu virus strikes without warning and symptoms can be severe and life-threatening. To help protect both you and your loved ones Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) will provide the flu vaccine. No appointment is necessary. Bring a photo ID and your insurance card to the clinic. LCPH accepts most private insurances, Medicare Part B, and Medicaid. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.

LCPH will offer two preservative-free flu vaccine options this year...
• Flu shot for ages 6 months through 64 years
• High-dose flu shot for adults 65 years and older

Come to flu shot clinics prepared using these steps at home:
1. Fill out a flu registration form online at LorainCountyHealth.com/flu.
2. Print the completed form and bring it with you

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a flu vaccine as the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu virus. Persons 6 months of age and older are encouraged to get a flu shot every year.
