Flu Shot Locations in Las Vegas

Flu shot locations and clinics

By

Many health care professionals will tell you that the best way to avoid a bout of the flu is to get a flu shot. One inoculation can offer protection against seasonal flu for up to eight months and the best time to get one is between October and November.

The shot is recommended for everyone but especially so for those at a higher risk of contracting illnesses, such as adults age 50 and older, children between the ages of 6 months and 23 months, pregnant women past their third month of pregnancy, and anyone who may have a chronic medical condition.

The Southern Nevada Health District says that there is no expected shortage of the vaccine for the 2008 season, and will be offering the vaccine until November 18th. After that patients will need to set up an appointment with their health care professional.

The following public health centers across southern Nevada will be offering the flu shot for $30 each, and accept cash, Medicare Part B, Medicare Railroad Part B, and Medicaid. Patients must present their insurance or Medicaid card at the time of service.
