Flu Clinics

With so many places around town offering flu shots, it is important to know the differences among the vaccines. At the Visiting Nurse & Hospice of the Southwest Region (VNAHSR) flu clinics, you are offered a CHOICE of vaccines:  Quadrivalent or High Dose.  At every VNAHSR flu clinic, highly-trained registered nurses take the time you need to give you a one-on-one education about which type of vaccine is best for YOU.

Who should get a flu shot at a VNAHSR clinic?

  • All adults age 18 years and older.
  • Adults with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease or asthma.
  • Adults with weakened immune system.
  • Adults who live with, or provide care for, children and adults.
  • Women who will be pregnant during the flu season.
