For more than 26 years the primary goals of the clinic have remained the same, which are:
For Boone County residents over the age of 60, nurses will be present to do medical histories and blood pressure checks.
Boone County Health Department is providing flu and pneumonia shots for this clinic. Flu shots will be available for $20.00 and Pneumonia shots for $30.00. Medicare Part-B beneficiaries who present their cards at the clinic site will receive the shots at no charge. While flu shots will not fully protect everyone, a yearly flu vaccination can be 70% effective in preventing a healthy person from contracting the disease.
Prescription counseling will be available. Bring your medicines and any questions and a registered pharmacist will discuss your prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Volunteers will also be available to answer questions about Medicare Part D.
These clinics are a practice in preventive medicine. Transportation to clinics is provided on request. For more information contact Boone County Senior Services, Inc. at (765)482-5220 or (317) 873-8939.
