VNA hosts flu clinics

The Visiting Nurses Association of the Rockford area (VNA) is offering its annual immunizations against influenza and pneumonia during October and November. VNA will be conducting clinics at more than 40 locations throughout the Rockford region and surrounding communities.

The cost for the flu vaccination is $18 per person. In addition, the pneumonia vaccination will be available at a cost of $25 and will be given to those who have never received one or to those who have a prescription from their doctor. Medicare Part B will cover the cost of each vaccine, and VNA will bill Medicare for the individual. Please bring your Medicare Card with you.

Information on flu clinic sites can be accessed by calling VNA’s FLU BUSTER hotline at 971-3581 or by visiting
