Flu season is quickly approaching, and the Visiting Nurse Association’s (VNA) 27th annual “Shoo the Flu” vaccination program is underway.

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 will offer 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. Funding allows the non-profit to provide care to anyone in the community who needs quality home health and hospice services. The care also includes those who do not have adequate healthcare coverage.
