Flu vaccine clinic Saturday

The Albany County Department of Health will offer a special flu vaccine clinic this Saturday, Jan. 12, at its office at 175 Green St., next to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Albany.

The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. until noon and is available to all Albany County residents over 6 months of age. You can call 518 447-4589 for an appointment; walk-ins also are welcome.

To make an appointment for a flu vaccine during the week, call 518 447-4589 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Health Department accepts most insurance plans and will bill Medicare Part B for individuals aged 65 and older. Individuals should bring proof of residence and their insurance card to their appointment. If the insurance plan is not accepted, the cost of the flu vaccination is $25 payable at the time of service. For those without insurance who are unable to pay the full cost, a sliding-fee scale will be used.
