PVMG to host Flu Shot Clinic October 1 – 4
KEARNEY, Neb. – Beginning Monday, October 1 and running through Thursday, October 4, Platte Valley Medical Group will be hosting a Flu Shot Clinic from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM each day with Tuesday, Oct. 2nd running later until 7 PM. The clinic will be held at the Platte Valley Medical Clinic for all wishing to get vaccinated before this flu season. An appointment is not necessary as the clinic will be staffed to take walk-in patients at any time during business hours.
Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently, but millions of people get the flu every year, hundreds of thousands of people are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from flu-related causes every year. (“Flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.) An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community.
Platte Valley will be offering both the Quadrivalent and the High dose vaccine. Protect yourself and get vaccinated.
