Health Department Announces Flu Clinic Dates

September 4, 2015 - 3:31 PM

With school back in session and the football season underway, the flu season will be here before you know it. To be protected from the flu, the Knox County Health Department recommends that everyone, ages 6 months and older, get a dose of flu vaccine.

With that in mind, the health department will kick-off its schedule of flu shot clinics with its annual drive-thru flu shot clinic. The agency will also offer six community clinics. The drive-thru clinic, now in its 11th year, will be held on Sat., Oct. 3 from 8-11 a.m. at the Knox County Fairgrounds. 

Five of the community clinics are for adults only and there is one clinic for children only. The dates and locations for the adult community clinics are: Mon., Oct. 5, 3-5 p.m. at the health department, 11660 Upper Gilchrist Rd.; Wed., Oct. 7, 1-3 p.m., at the Apple Valley POA Bldg., Howard; Thurs., Oct. 8, 1-3 p.m., at St. Luke’s Community Center in Danville; Thur., Oct. 15, 1-3 p.m., at the Community Library in Fredericktown; and Tues., Nov. 3, 1-3 p.m. at the Community Center in Gambier. Vaccine in the form of a shot will be available at the adult clinics.

A clinic for children only will be held Tues., Oct. 20 from 3-6 p.m. at the health department. Vaccine will be available as either a shot or nasal spray. 

The cost for the flu vaccine at all health department clinics is $25 and can be paid in cash or by check. Medicaid, Medicare and most forms of insurance will be accepted for payment.

Pre-registration is not necessary for any of the clinics, but registration forms are available for pick-up at the health department or on the website at for anyone to complete prior to the clinic.
