October 5th: Influenza Clinic

We know that it might not seem crucial to include, but the years bring about new strains of the flu and it’s important to make sure you’re vaccinated. Not only yourself, but your family as well. The vaccine is covered by Medicare part B, but if you do not have Medicare then the cost of the vaccine will be $25. A small price to pay in order to keep you and your family safe this season. This clinic will run from 10AM-1PM on the 5th of October. Make sure you head out to the Monmouth County Health Department or contact them for more details.
