UR Medicine Thompson Health will hold several public flu clinics in a number of locations over the next several weeks.
Administered to those 9 and older at these clinics, the standard 2022-2023 vaccine provides protection against four flu virus strains. There also is a high-dose flu vaccine for those 65 and older. This contains additional antigen designed to create a stronger immune response for the recipient.
Community members are asked to please wear masks to the clinics, as Thompson abides by CDC guidelines requiring masks in all locations where healthcare is being delivered.
