2013 Family Flu Vaccine Clinic Dates Announced

Shelby County Public Health, part of Myrtue Medical Center, has scheduled numerous clinics for receiving the flu vaccine.  There will be several public clinics held in Harlan at the Community Health building located at 2712 12th Street.  Please make an appointment for them online at or by calling 755-4422.

There will also be clinics held in Irwin, Earling, Westphalia, Shelby, Avoca, Defiance, Panama, Portsmouth and Elk Horn.  Appointments are not needed for these clinics.

You may print out a consent form and read the Vaccine Information Statement by going to or at the bottom of this new release.

This year there are more types of flu vaccine being manufactured, including high dose (recommended for those over age 65), intradermal (also known as micro-needle), standard shots and nasal spray (mist).  Some of the vaccines will be “trivalent” which means it contains three strains of inactivated flu virus, and others will be the new “quadrivalent” which means it contains four strains of the flu virus.  The CDC does not recommend one type of flu vaccine over the other.  The important thing is that everyone (except babies younger than 6 months old) should get a flu vaccine every year.
