All health department locations offering H1N1 vaccination

So, you think you don’t need the H1N1 vaccination? Isn’t the “swine flu” over? Not so, according to Cathy Raevsky, administrative health officer for the Kent County Health Department (KCHD).

“While the worst of the flu season could be over,” said Raevsky, “we don’t know what we’ll see this winter or spring. Another wave of illness is feasible and a flu shot is the best way to protect people from the flu. I encourage anyone who wants a vaccination to make an appointment with their doctor, a pharmacy, or the Kent County Health Department.”

KCHD is now offering novel H1N1 flu shots by appointment at all six of its clinic locations. Clinics are in Wyoming, Kentwood, Rockford, and multiple Grand Rapids locations. Appointment times for each location vary, but appointments can be made by calling 2-1-1 (or 459-2255 if not using a land line) or by visiting www.stickittotheflu.com.

There is no up-front cost for vaccination, but those with insurance cards should bring them to the appointment and KCHD can bill your insurance if the vaccination is covered. To those who are not covered, the vaccination is being offered free of charge.
