Ravalli County Public Health is making it convenient to get a flu shot in the valley. Thursday, October 17, a seasonal flu vaccine walk-in clinic will be at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds Event Center. Public Health Director Angelia Allen said the hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and "We will be offering vaccines for everyone 6 months and older." She said the high-dose flu vaccine will be available for those 65 and older. That vaccine has four times the amount of antigen than a regular shot.

Most insurance plans will pay for the shot. If not, the cost at this clinic is only $10. If you can't attend, the Public Health Department at the Ravalli County Courthouse on the corner of Bedford and South 2nd Streets has Walk-in Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with no appointment necessary. On Mondays and Fridays, vaccinations are available by appointment throughout the day. To schedule an appointment call 375-6672.
