Kansas City Area health departments offer flu shots


Kansas City Area health departments offer flu shots and test response capabilities

As the influenza season approaches, flu clinics are an ideal means of testing plans, clinic capabilities, and preparedness for public health emergencies. Flu shots are also the best way to protect you and those around you from the flu. Those who get vaccinated for the flu are far less likely to get sick or give it to friends, family or coworkers.

Area public health departments will be testing their ability to respond to major emergencies on Oct. 23, 2008, by cooperating and coordinating region-wide flu shot clinics. In the event of an outbreak or terrorist attack, many agencies will need to be able to work together and set up multiple clinics on short notice to help as many people as possible. This is the first time all of the area health departments and many area health care providers are collaborating on such a comprehensive event.

Prices, participation, and hours of each clinic vary by jurisdiction. Go to www.preparemetrokc.org/be_prepared/flushotclinics.asp for full clinic details, or see below for the clinic closest to you.

KCI Airport flu shot clinic Nov. 10 protects travelers

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Health Department and Kansas City International Airport are partnering to provide a special flu shot clinic to protect travelers on Monday, Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Flu vaccines will be available for those age 3 years and older for $10 per shot in all three terminals. Cash or credit cards will be accepted.

The shots will be available on a first come first serve basis at:

* Terminal A - Gates 12-14, between the ticket counter and baggage claim.

* Terminal B - Gate 31, by the Super Shuttle Rental, and Gates 45-50, by the Southwest Airlines baggage claim 2 and 3.

* Terminal C - Gate 78, by the bathrooms between the CNBC News/Gifts and Starbucks.

"Travelers are often at a much higher risk for contracting and spreading the flu," said Dr. Rex Archer, director of the Health Department. "By protecting the travelers, we also protect the families, friends and coworkers that they will visit in Kansas City and elsewhere in our global community."

Flu shot prices at the Health Department have been lowered to $10, cash or credit. For those who provide proof of coverage, the department will bill Medicare Part A or B or Missouri Medicaid on their behalf.
