Memorial schedules weekday flu shot clinicby jmaloni
Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will conduct a weekday flu shot clinic for adults 18 and older from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, in the hospital's auditorium, 621 10th St., Niagara Falls.
This year's influenza vaccine protects against the H3N2 influenza strain, swine flu, part of the H1N1 family, and a Type B strain - all in a single dose. Pneumonia vaccine also will be available.
Wear a short-sleeved shirt or top and use the hospital's 10th Street entrance or the walkway from the attached parking ramp, where free parking will be provided.
Patients with health insurance, including Medicare, should bring their insurance cards. No co-pay will be required. Individuals who do not have insurance will be charged $20 for a flu shot.
People exhibiting cold-like symptoms, including an elevated temperature, should wait until a later clinic to get their flu shots.
