Red Cross to offer Flu Shot Clinic

The local Red Cross Chapter will hold a flu shot clinic next week.

The Midland Empire Chapter of the American Red Cross will hold the clinic on Tuesday in St Joseph.

They will be providing flu shots for $30 and pneumonia shots for $55 for those over 18-years-old. Those shots can be covered by certain insurance companies.

An appointment is not necessary, as the clinic is walk-in only.

“If we can reduce one person’s illness or save one life with a flu or pneumonia vaccine, it is a great service our Red Cross volunteers can provide the community,” said Kevin Kirby, Executive Director of Midland Empire Chapter.  “The Red Cross offered flu shot clinics across the St. Joseph area earlier in the season, but we realize there are still people who want the chance to get protected against the flu.”

The Centers for Disease Control reports the flu season has yet to hit its peak. The flu clinic is from 9:00am-5:00pm Tuesday at the American Red Cross on North 12th street.
