Flu shots offered Nov. 21

The City of Woodinville is partnering with Visiting Nurse Services of the Northwest to offer influenza (Flu) and pneumococcal vaccines to the general public on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon at Woodinville City Hall, 17301 133rd Avenue NE. Flu immunization is $18; pneumococcal (pneumonia) vaccine is $25.
   Medicare recipients who are not members of a managed care plan may use their Medicare benefit as payment. Individuals will be asked to sign a consent form at the time of immunization. Payment is made to VNS/NW.
   This campaign is designed to educate the public about influenza and the importance of immunization, particularly for at-risk populations. The "Needle City Hall" program allows collaboration with city governments to make flu immunizations easily accessible.
