ClearChoiceMD to Offer No Cost Flu Shots Throughout October
The Autumn season is synonymous with many things, such as cooler nights, turning back the clocks and pumpkin spice. Last, but certainly not least, autumn means the flu season is quickly approaching. Be prepared this season by getting your flu shot. ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care, located at 750 Lafayette Road (in the Keller Williams/Northway Bank building) in Portsmouth, will be offering flu shots at no cost to the patient throughout the entire month of October.
“It’s important to get your flu vaccination before winter begins so your body has enough time to develop the antibodies that protect against influenza. Receiving the flu shot not only helps you protect yourself, but it also prevents the flu from spreading throughout the community,” says Dr. Thomas Scott, Chief Medical Officer at ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care. “We want the community to know that we are a resource for them at any time, especially during flu season.”
The No Cost Flu Shot Month allows all patients to get vaccinated, regardless of insurance coverage. Vaccinations are available for ages 4 years and older, while supplies last. No appointments are needed, just walk in from 8am – 8pm. Patients are asked to bring a photo ID and insurance card (if available). For those with healthcare insurance, the urgent care center will bill the carrier and cover any remaining out of pocket cost. For those without insurance, ClearChoiceMD will cover the cost.
