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.
