The Visiting Nurse Association of Porter County (VNA) is preparing for another busy flu shot season. Influenza (flu) is a serious disease of the nose, throat, and lungs. It can make you sick for a week or longer with coughing, fever, aching, and more. It can lead to pneumonia and make already existing health problems such as diabetes, asthma, and heart disease worse. Each year in the U.S. about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes. Getting a flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu.

The VNA will host flu shot clinics open to the public at the following sites:

–Wednesday, Sept. 5, 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., Valpo YMCA, 1201 Cumberland Crossing Drive, Valparaiso

–Monday, Sept. 10, 4 to 6 p.m., VNA, 2401 Valley Drive, Valparaiso

–Monday, Sept. 24, 4 to 7 p.m., VNA, 2401 Valley Drive, Valparaiso

–Sunday, Sept. 30, 8:45 to 10:45 a.m., Christ Lutheran Church, 2610 Campbell St., Valparaiso

–Friday, Oct. 5, 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., Banta Senior Center, 605 Beech St., Valparaiso

–Sunday, Oct 7, 7:30 to 11 a.m., St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 1855 West Harrison Blvd., Valparaiso

–Wednesday, Oct. 10, 9 to 11 a.m., Bonner Senior Center, 5800 Lexington, Portage

–Monday, Oct. 22, 4 to 7 p.m., VNA, 2401 Valley Drive, Valparaiso

 

Flu shots cost $30 or presentation of a Medicare Part B card. Ticket numbers will be distributed on a first come, first served basis at VNA flu shot clinic sites. The VNA is able to vaccinate persons 9 years old and older.

The FDA approved vaccine protects against the three viruses predicted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to be circulating this year, the A/California (the H1N1 strain), A/Victoria and B/Wisconsin viruses.

For the past 19 years, the VNA, a nonprofit organization, has provided flu shot immunizations to the community, often staffed by nurses who volunteer their time as part of their contribution to community health.
