Hennepin County Public Health is publicizing three walk-in immunization clinics aimed at people who don’t have health insurance, or whose insurance doesn’t cover shots.
The county notes that flu season is reaching its peak.
(If you’d like to geek out on flu data, check out the MN Dept of Health web site where you can find Weekly Influenza & Respiratory Activity.)
Shots are free to anyone who doesn’t have insurance, though donations are requested.
All are walk-in clinics so no appointments are needed. The clinics will be:
Bloomington Clinic: Bloomington Division of Health, 1900 W. Old Shakopee Road, March 6 and 20, 3 to 5:30 p.m.
Brooklyn Center Clinic: Hennepin County’s Brookdale Service Center, 6125 Shingle Creek Road, March 27, 9 to 11 a.m.
Downtown Minneapolis Clinic: Hennepin Health Services Building, 525 Portland Ave. S., March 2, 8:30 to 11 a.m.
For more information about these clinics, call 612-348-2884 or go to www.hennepin.us/vaccines.
Get your shot, sneeze into your elbow and wash your hands.
