It's that time of year again—time to be immunized against the flu.
Lafayette General is offering two clinic options. The first, through our Center on Aging, is to make flu immunizations more widely available and accessible to elders. For the Center on Aging clinics only, you must have an appointment, so call ahead at 289-8516. There is no out-of-pocket cost for immunizations for persons on Medicare (you must bring your card to the clinic). For all others, the cost is $31 for the flu immunization (pneumonia will not be available).
The second option is through LGMC's urgent care centers, Family Health Plaza and QuickCare on Pinhook.
