An easy New Year’s resolution: Get your flu shot
Michigan Visiting Nurses offering flu shot clinics, Jan. 5 and Jan. 9
ANN ARBOR, MI – Here’s a New Year’s resolution that is easy to keep: Getting a flu shot.
That’s right, it’s still not too late to get a flu shot – but time is running out. The University of Michigan Health System’s Michigan Visiting Nurses will offer two flu shot clinics in coming days, on Jan. 5 and Jan. 9.
The clinics are:
- Noon-4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 5, at the Wolverine Room of the Michigan Union, 530 S. State, Ann Arbor
- 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 9, at Michigan Visiting Nurses, 2850 S. Industrial Hwy, #75, Ann Arbor (near the intersection of Industrial and Eisenhower)
Flu shots are $33 this year, and pneumonia shots will be offered for $82. Payment options include cash, check and credit card, as well as Medicare Part B, M-Care, CareChoices and HAP, all of which cover the entire cost of the flu shot.
You cannot receive a flu shot at these clinics if you: have a fever of 101 degrees or higher; have an allergy to eggs or egg products; have a Thimerosal allergy; have been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome; or are allergic to Benadryl or Epinephrine.
MVN, part of the University of Michigan Health System, is a nonprofit organization that has served the community since 1909.
