The Richland County Health Department’s annual Mass Flu Shot Clinic continues as a drive-thru format, scheduled for Thursday, September 28th, from 10:00AM to 6:00PM at the Richland County Fire Hall in Sidney.
The Drive-Thru Clinic will serve adults only, and offers both regular and high-dose flu shots. No other shots will be given during the clinic. No appointment is needed. Flu shots cannot be given to those who have animals in their vehicles. Children may be in the vehicle, but may not receive flu shots. Follow traffic signs to enter the Fire Hall from the North side.
There are no COVID-19 vaccines available at the clinic, and the flu shot does not contain COVID-19 vaccine.
The Health Department carries quadrivalent, pre-filled syringes that contain no preservative. The price of flu vaccine will vary from $45 to $85, depending on the individual’s age and the type of vaccine used. Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance may be billed for those who bring their cards. For self-pay clients, only cash or check can be accepted.
Flu clinic paperwork may be printed, or obtained the day of the drive-thru clinic. Note that the form is double-sided, though clients should only fill out the front side.
Flu shots, as well as other vaccines, for children and families will be available during regular clinic hours, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, 10:00AM to 4:30PM by appointment. Additional clinic hours are the second Wednesday until 6:00pm, and the third Thursday of the month, from 10:00AM to 12:00PM and 1:00PM to 4:00PM by appointment.
