Goshen Physicians will be hosting drive-thru flu shot clinics this fall. These clinics are open to the community for ages 10 and older. The influenza vaccine is free with most insurance plans. Cash, check and credit card will also be accepted. Self-pay cost is $40 for the low dose and $107 for the high dose. No prior registration is necessary, but participants should bring a photo ID, insurance card and payment method. Parent\/guardian signature is required for those under 18.

“With the fall influenza season fast approaching and COVID-19 protocols loosening, it's opening the door for infections like the flu to spread more easily again,” said Dr. Dan Nafziger, Goshen Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist.
\r\n 
\r\nFlu symptoms tend to be worse than a cold. The flu can lead to sinus and ear infections, pneumonia, bacterial infections or hospitalization. For people who already have medical conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart disease, the flu can make their conditions worse and lead to serious complications.
\r\n 
\r\nFlu shots prevent 40 percent of flu-related hospitalizations among adults and 82 percent of admissions into an intensive care unit.<\/p>"]
