Caldwell County Health Department Reschedules Annual Flu Drive-Thru Clinic
LENOIR, NC (October 4, 2018) — Caldwell County Health Department has rescheduled the annual “Flu Drive-Thru Clinic” for Saturday, October 20th, 2018 at the Caldwell County Health Department, 2345 Morganton BLVD SW, Lenoir, NC 28645. The drive-thru clinic is open to the public from 8:00am-11:00am. The flu vaccine being administered this year is the quadrivalent vaccine and is designed to protect against four different flu viruses: two influenza A (H1N1) viruses and two influenza B viruses.
Caldwell County Health Department accepts most insurances (Medicare part B card, current Medicaid card or any other private insurance card). Please provide a front and back copy of your insurance card, at time of service. Uninsured patients can receive a flu shot for $30. We accept cash and check at time of service.
For your convenience and to save time at the clinic, flu consent forms can be found online at caldwellcountync.org or can be picked up at both the Caldwell County Health Department and at any of the Caldwell County library branches in Lenoir, Hudson and Granite Falls.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that getting vaccinated is the single best way for people to protect not only themselves against flu, but their loved ones as well. “As this year’s flu season approaches, remember these four simple tips to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others: wash your hands often, cover your cough, stay home when sick and get your flu vaccine,” said the Caldwell County Health Department’s Preparedness Coordinator, Chad Coffey.
