Platte Valley Medical Center will host its first H1N1 Vaccination Clinic for the general public on Thursday, December 17, from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Conference Center. The hospital is located at 1600 Prairie Center Parkway in Brighton.
Previous H1N1 flu clinics were restricted to individuals in priority groups defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Restrictions have been lifted and this H1N1 flu clinic is open to the general public.
The H1N1 vaccine is available in the FluMist and injectable form. Both vaccines are equally effective, yet the H1N1 FluMist is only for healthy individuals, between the ages of two and 49, with no underlying health conditions, like pregnancy, asthma, and diabetes.
The price for H1N1 vaccines is $15.00. PVMC is not billing insurance companies for this vaccine, but can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company.
