Princeton Flu Shot Clinic Set for Oct. 13

vaccineOn Tuesday, Oct. 13, the Princeton Flu Clinic will be held from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Princeton Senior Resource Center, which is located at 45 Stockton Street. The annual Senior Resource Center health fair will be held 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A makeup flu vaccination clinic will be held on Wednesday, October 28th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Monument Hall Building, which is located at 1 Monument Drive. Additional flu clinic dates for November and December will be posted soon, officials said.

“Princeton’s Flu Clinic and Health Fair provides an important opportunity for our community to get protected from this year’s strains of flu while educating themselves on how to avoid other illness and disease as well,” said Jeff Grosser, the Princeton Health Officer.

No out of pocket costs are associated with the flu vaccine if you are covered by the following insurances: Medicare-Part B, Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal, United Healthcare Insurance Co., Horizon NJ Direct, CVS Caremark, Oxford (UHC), AmeriHealth, Tricare, Aetna or Cigna. Anyone covered by a different health insurance can contact the Princeton Health Department to determine eligibility. Other vaccinations also available at this year’s flu clinic including pneumococcal and Tdap vaccine(s).

The pneumococcal vaccine is recommended for all adults 65 Years or older. Speak to your doctor regarding this vaccine, especially if you have had pneumonia before, or have had the vaccine before.

The Tdap Vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis booster) is recommended every 10 Years.

Walk-ins are welcome, but officials are urging anyone planning on attending the clinic to make an appointment with Mauri at PSRC by calling 924-7108. Complete a consent form and bring it to the clinic. Consent forms can be found here: http://www.princetonnj.gov/health/2015-2016-Screening-Questionnaire-Consent.pdf.
