Free Flu Shots for Uninsured Adults at Cass County Public HealthOctober 27, 2020
Atlantic, IA — Cass County Public Health has a limited supply of influenza vaccine as part of an initiative to immunize adults with no insurance, who are under-insured, or who have limited access to influenza vaccine.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling Cass County Public Health at 712-250-8008. The vaccine will be administered in their office at 1408 East 10th Street. Weekend appointments may also be available; if needed, please ask when you call to schedule.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided adult influenza vaccines to states to increase influenza vaccine coverage in the United States as a critical part of COVID-19 response work. Increasing adult influenza coverage will result in a decreased strain on the nation’s health care system. This one-time initiative for the 2000-21 influenza season allowed states to order adult influenza vaccine and provide it to those who are uninsured, under-insured, or live in areas where they may have limited access to receive the vaccine.
