Family Friendly Flu Shot Clinics

Covenant Home Health will sponsor influenza vaccine clinics for the community on various days, times and locations. Covenant Home Health can bill Medicare and most major health insurance companies for family members or the public. 

There will be no flu mist this year. The CDC has concluded flu mist is ineffective.

The dates, times and locations for flu shot clinics are as follows:
  • Tuesday, 9/26          4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.          Outpatient & Women’s Center
  • Wednesday, 9/27     4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.          Sartori Memorial Hospital, Foundation Conference Room
  • Thursday, 10/5         4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.          Outpatient & Women’s Center

For clinics at the Outpatient & Women's Center, use the entrance on south end of Covenant Medical Center and register at the main desk on second floor.

Covenant Home Health is not able to give the vaccine to Medicaid recipients younger than 19 years of age due to the free Vaccines For Children program. For more information about influenza, schedule an appointment with your family medicine provider.
