The Yalobusha County Health Department will hold a special flu shot clinic on Monday, November 3, in the Yalobusha County Health Department from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this time, health department staff will focus on providing flu vaccinations so that all residents can complete the process quickly and efficiently.
Adult flu vaccinations cost $25. Pneumococcal vaccinations (otherwise known as pneumonia shots) will also be available at a cost of $44. Medicare Part B covers the cost of both vaccinations, so those with Medicare Part B should bring their cards with them to the clinic. Children, ages six months through 18 years, can receive flu vaccinations for $10.
Residents may also obtain flu vaccinations from private providers and some retail pharmacies.
Mississippi flu season typically begins in late December or early January and runs through March.
