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 health care 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.

For more information on VNA services, please call 772-567-5551.
