The Crawford County Public Health immunization clinic will be held in the Gays Mills Community Commerce Center, on Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 3 to 4 p.m.
Each month, the clinic offers all childhood vaccinations. They currently also offer vaccinations for whooping cough (Tdap), shingles (zoster), and influenza (seasonal flu).
The Tdap vaccine is available for free to everyone, regardless of age, to help prevent the spread of whooping cough.
Immunizations to children age 18 and younger, who either do not have insurance, are on Medicaid or BadgerCare, or who have insurance that does not cover immunizations are also free.
Zoster and flu vaccines are available as self-pay. Public Health is able to bill Medicare, Medicaid, Senior Preferred, Gundersen Lutheran, and Health Traditions for the flu vaccine. There is patient assistance to help those who qualify pay for the zoster vaccine.
For those who will be attending the clinic with a child in need of a Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, please notify the clinic by the day before the clinic. The vaccine is fragile and is only brought to the Gays Mills clinic upon request.
No appointment is necessary for the clinic.
