Health department reminds everyone to get flu shot

The Osage County Health Department is encouraging everyone to remember to get their flu shot this year. The department currently has high-dose vaccine in stock, which is for people age 65 and older. The rest of the department’s regular stock inventory is expected to be in soon, but the state has been behind in receiving its supply of state-funded vaccine (VFC program vaccine), and it may be longer before inventory is received for KanCare (Medicaid) card holders. Call the health department at 785-828-3117 before visiting to check on flu vaccine availability. The department accepts Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield insurances.

Osage County Health Department is at 103 E. Ninth St., Lyndon, Kan.
