It's Not Too Late for a Flu Shot!

Posted on January 4, 2017 12:40 pm CST

Most people think about getting their flu shots in the fall. So what if you are one of the people sitting here in January who didn't get a flu shot? Is it too late to get one? Definitely not!! As of just a month ago (December 2, 2016), the Springfield Greene County Health Department only listed 2 confirmed cases of influenza in the Springfield area. But as of December 30th, that number had risen to 129 confirmed cases. Medicine Store still has plenty of the vaccination in stock and it is not too late to get one. It typically takes about 2 weeks for the flu shot to protect you from influenza, so time really is of the essence. The typical flu season lasts into March and even April so there is still much benefit to obtaining the 2016-2017 vaccination. Medicine Store can bill any insurance for the vaccination and most insurance plans cover it with little to no copay. We also bill Medicare Part B. If you don't have insurance and still would like a flu shot, our cash price is $30. You can call ahead to make an appointment but we do accept walk-ins on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday mornings and Friday mornings.If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (417)881-8841.
