Public Flu Clinic Schedule Released

Rochester, NY – Public flu shot clinics in Monroe County start next week with an afternoon clinic at the Dome Center in Henrietta.

The University of Rochester School of Nursing says it plans to hold about two dozen public flu clinics and 100 clinics at Rochester-area companies over the next few months. They say there's a solid supply of the flu vaccine on hand this year.

Health authorities are advising all elegible people to get a flu shot. That's especially true for people 50 and over, young children and pregnant women. The same holds true for people with medical conditions such as asthma or heart disease.

Medicare and most private insurance covers the shot. Otherwise it's 30 dollars.

The first public clinic is Tuesday, October 5th at the Dome Center, starting at 4:00 p.m.
