County clinics to offer free flu vaccinations

October 23, 2005

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health will offer flu vaccinations to county residents beginning tomorrow.

Injected and nasal-spray vaccines are free, but the department suggests donations of $20. Medicare Part B will cover the $20 donation by seniors. Medicaid patients will need their cards.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends vaccinations for groups at elevated risk, such as people age 65 and older; those with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and HIV/AIDS; children 6 months to 23 months; pregnant women; health care personnel who provide direct patient care; and out-of-home caregivers of children younger than 6 months old.
