ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) – Arnot Health is holding several flu shot clinics in the coming weeks.

The clinics are open to anyone 18 and older. If you’re looking to get your child vaccinated for the flu, Arnot recommends you contact your healthcare provider.

Arnot Health says in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is “more important than ever to get a flu shot”.

“The symptoms of the two illnesses can be very similar and successful treatment will depend on having a full understanding of which condition you are facing. It is safe to have the flu shot at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccine.”

Those with coverage will have their insurance billed. If you are uninsured or choose to self-pay, the cost is $22.

The clinics will take place on the following days:

October 22 at the Ernie Davis Community Center from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (COVID vaccine will also be available) 
October 26 at the Steele Memorial Library from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. 
November 5 at the Ernie Davis Community Center from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (COVID vaccine will also be available)
