Cornerstone VNA Offers Public Drive-Through Flu Clinic

Cornerstone VNA Offers Public Drive-Through Flu Clinic October 22

 

Cornerstone Visiting Nurse Association is pleased to offer the community a drive-through flu clinic on Friday, October 22 from 10:00am until 1:00pm. The clinic will be held outside in the parking lot at their main office at 178 Farmington Road in Rochester, NH. Community members will follow the entrance to the Cornerstone VNA building and turn left, following the orange cones. Cornerstone VNA clinical staff will be on hand to administer the flu vaccine.  Flu vaccines are covered by most major insurances, including Medicare, but unfortunately, they are unable to accept the Medicare Advantage Plan or Cigna. Please bring your insurance card. The cost for the flu vaccine is $40 without insurance, and $70 for the high dose.

 

“We held our first drive through flu clinic last year, which was a convenient and safe option for our local community members,” shares Sandy Powers, RN, Health and Wellness Nurse. Powers adds, “We are pleased to be able to provide this service once again to help protect folks during the flu season.”

 

With the continued impact of COVID-19, the influenza vaccination is even more important for everyone. Keeping flu infections down will greatly benefit our local health care organizations, who continue to be on the frontlines of treating patients diagnosed with COVID-19.
