HART — District Health Department #10 is helping communities prepare for the upcoming flu season by offering flu vaccines to children, adults and seniors.

“Flu season is unpredictable, and with COVID-19 still spreading, it is more important than ever to protect you and your family against influenza by getting an annual flu shot,” states a DHD #10 press release.

In Oceana County, DHD#10 is hosting flu clinics at the Hart VFW, 802 S. State St.: Oct. 9, 16, 23, 30, and Nov. 6, 13, 20 from 9 a.m. to noon.

You may qualify for a free flu shot, so be sure to ask. The cost for the seasonal flu vaccination without insurance is $37. High dose and preservative-free flu shots are available for $46.

Many health insurance plans now cover the cost of flu vaccines. If not, DHD#10 may be able to help through Vaccines for Children (VFC) or other programs.
