2020_PCHD_News

(Pitt County) – The Pitt County Health Department will hold community flu shot clinics throughout Pitt County beginning on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 to help reach individuals who find it difficult to receive a vaccine. Receiving a seasonal flu vaccine each year is the best way to protect against getting the flu. This year, a flu vaccination is even more critical. Although flu vaccines will not prevent COVID-19, they can reduce the burden of flu illnesses that result in hospitalizations already impacted by COVID-19. 

 

All community clinics will operate from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the following locations:

 

Wednesday, December 9, 2020      

Farmville Community Center, 3886 S. Main St, Farmville, NC

 

Saturday, December 12, 2020         

Awesome Radio, 2531 S. Memorial Dr, Greenville, NC

Saturday, December 19, 2020

Individuals, 6 month of age and older will be served. Each site will offer a limited supply of vaccine and will be given on a first come, first served basis. High dose vaccine will not be provided.

 

Eligibility: There is no cost for children who are eligible for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Vaccines For Children (VFC) Program. VFC eligibility requirements include being younger than 19 years of age and meeting one of the following: Medicaid-eligible, Uninsured, Underinsured, or American Indian or Alaska Native. In addition, any uninsured pregnant women, 19 years and older, being served by a local health department, rural health center or federally qualified health center, in any capacity and persons of any age enrolled in the “Be Smart Family Planning Program” also receiving services at these facilities are eligible to receive VFC flu vaccine.

 

Medicaid, BCBS and Medcost insurances will also be accepted. Individuals must bring their Medicaid or other insurance card. Individuals, who do not have Medicaid, BCBS or Medcost insurances will still be served at no out-of-pocket cost.

 

In the event of inclement weather, these clinics will be rescheduled.
