Horizon Health is offering two, walk-in flu shot clinics at the Paris Clinic in October.

Flu shots will be available with no appointment on the following days:

  • Tuesday, October 19, from 1:30 to 5:30 pm
  • Wednesday, October 27, from noon to 1:30 pm

Though an appointment is not required, patients should register at the clinic when they arrive.

As always, flu shots are available during regularly scheduled appointments at the Chrisman, Oakland, and Paris clinics, as well as at both EZ Care locations.

Flu shots will be available to adults age 18 and older at the October 19 and 27 flu shot clinics, and will include a cash-pay option. Flu shots are available to children at regularly scheduled appointments.

Three types of flu shots are available:

  • Standard dose flu shots.
  • High-dose vaccines for seniors age 65 and older.
  • Flublok, recommended for age 50 and older, or age 18 and older with certain chronic conditions. Flublok is a quadrivalent recombinant protein-based vaccine, meaning neither eggs nor the influenza virus were used in the production process.

Patients covered under Medicaid, as well as those under 18, who need a flu shot should make an appointment with their primary care provider.
