Knox Community Center flu shot clinic Oct. 29
Rockland — Spectrum Generations Knox Community Center will be hosting a flu shot clinic Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its 61 Park St. center.
To learn more about this year’s influenza season arrive at the Knox Community Center at 10:30 a.m. for a brief presentation followed by a question and answer session lead by a member of Kno-Wal-Lin’s Home Care and Hospice, PenBay Healthcare nursing staff.
CDC recommends that people get vaccinated against influenza as soon as 2013-2014 flu season vaccine becomes available in their community. Influenza seasons are unpredictable, and can begin as early as October. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
Seasonal flu shots will be administered by a Kno-Wal-Lin Home Healthcare Registered Nurse. The cost will be $30 for consumers and community members who do not have or do not bring their Medicare insurance card to the flu shot clinic. Please come prepared to get the shot by wearing a short sleeve shirt or a shirt that can be rolled up to expose the top of the arm.
So that Kno-Wal-Lin will know how many doses to bring please call 596-0339. Shots will be administered on a first come first serve basis, so remember to call and to come early.
