Time: 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Location: Tuscany Falls Ballroom #3
As part of our Kare Bears Wellness Program, we have four dates we are offering flu and pneumonia shots clinics. These shots will be administered by Walgreens.
If you wish to have a shingles shot or any other vaccinations, Walgreens will not administer these at the clinic in PebbleCreek. However, they will have information available. You will be able to make appointments on your own or go to Walgreens at your convenience to get these other vaccinations.
WALK-INS are WELCOME!
They will be giving the Standard Flu Shots along with the High Dose 65 plus Flu Shots, Pneumonia and Pneumonia Booster Shots at the Tuscany Falls Ballroom #3 on the following dates and times:
Friday, Oct. 12, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 18, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 19, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 24, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
In general, most insurance covers the cost of the Flu Shots at 100% (Medicare does cover flu shots). However, if the shots are not covered by your insurance, the cash price for the Standard Flu Shots is approximately $40. The cost of for the High Dose 65 plus shot is approximately $69.99. The cash price for the Pneumonia shot is approximately $252, and for the Pneumonia Booster shot the price is $460. Please check with your insurance carrier prior to signing up for your copay price.
Flu vaccines are administered yearly. Pneumonia vaccines are administered every five years and the pneumonia booster shot is administered once in a lifetime. If you have had a pneumonia vaccine in the last five years, you can get a booster.
Walgreens would like payment by cash or check only. If you pay by cash, please have exact change. Most insurance plans are accepted.
A sign-up sheet is in the Kare Bears folder at the Community Information mailbox across from the Eagle's Nest Pro Shop on Aug. 25. Residents can choose the time they prefer to sign up.
