Putnam County Hospital announces flu shot clinics
Flu season is just around the corner.
Putnam County Hospital will again host drive-through flu clinics at Putnam Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, Family Medicine of Cloverdale and North Putnam Family Healthcare.
Putnam Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, Family Medicine of Cloverdale and North Putnam Family Healthcare are offering the opportunity for community members to schedule their flu shot.
The clinics will be held Saturday, Sept. 18 (high dose only) 65 and over, Saturday, Oct. 9 (all ages) and Saturday, Oct. 16 (all ages).
These vaccinations are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call Putnam Pediatrics and Internal Medicine at 765-301-7400, Family Medicine of Cloverdale at 765-795-4242 or North Putnam Family Healthcare at 765-301-7679.
“One of my top priorities as a primary care physician is preventing suffering, and vaccines are one of the best tools I have to do that,” Dr. Cecily Casselman of North Putnam Family Healthcare said. “We have enough to worry about — get vaccinated and give yourself the peace of mind that you are protecting yourself and loved ones from communicable diseases.“
It is the goal of Putnam County Hospital and the providers of Putnam County Hospital to give the community the opportunity to receive the flu shot without having to miss work or school.
“Influenza season is rapidly approaching, and just as in last year we will likely have a mixed bag of not only influenza, common cold, rhinoviruses and COVID-19,” Dr. Lisa Martin said. “It is very important for everyone to get the flu vaccine to help prevent illness from influenza and certainly the potential for co infection with influenza and COVID-19 may be overwhelming to the immune system.”
