VNA Offering “Shoo the Flu” Vaccination Clinics in October

Shoo the flu logo

Flu season is officially upon us, and the Visiting Nurse Association of the Treasure Coast’s (VNA) 26th annual “Shoo the Flu” vaccination program is underway. Public vaccination clinics will be held Mondays from 3 – 5 p.m. and each Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. at VNA Hidden Treasures Vero Beach (656 21st Street) thru December.  At VNA Hidden Treasures Sebastian (11646 US Hwy 1) flu vaccinations will be available Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. Those who get their flu shot at any of the Hidden Treasures clinics will receive a coupon to the hospice thrift store for 50% off any one item. To receive a flu shot from the VNA, individuals should bring their primary insurance card. Those without health insurance, or who are unable to afford the cost of a flu shot, can call VNA Community Wellness Manager, Paula Thibideau, LPN, at 772-978-5524 for more options.

The VNA is offering three types of flu vaccinations:  a preservative-free high-dose vaccine, a preservative-free quadrivalent vaccine and a regular quadrivalent vaccine. The high-dose vaccine contains four times the number of antigens and is only for those individuals who are 65 years or older. The quadrivalent vaccine is for individuals 10 years or older and offers broader coverage than the regular flu shot.  All VNA flu vaccines are manufactured in the United States, and money raised from the VNA’s “Shoo the Flu” program supports the agency, allowing the non-profit to provide care to anyone in the community who needs quality home health and hospice services, including those who do not have adequate healthcare coverage for much needed care.

The VNA’s priority is to keep the community healthy, and the organization encourages all area residents to get their flu shot early in the season. A schedule for additional public clinics held throughout the community can be found at www.vnatc.com/flu. Money raised by the “Shoo the Flu” program stays in the community and helps fund VNA charitable health care initiatives.
