Get your flu shot now!

Posted: Thursday, October 8, 2020, 1:42 PM

With the flu season upon us, the sooner you receive a flu shot, the better it will be for your health. Goodall-Witcher Healthcare encourages everyone to plan to get a flu shot NOW!

Just walk-in at one of our clinic locations in Clifton or Whitney and inform our friendly front office staff that you would like a flu shot, or schedule an appointment with your provider. Depending on the medical needs of the patient, the flu shot will cost from $45 - $75.

It’s important to get a #flu vaccine every year! Immune protection from a vaccine declines over time, so getting vaccinated every year ensures maximum protection.

•Did you know? #Flu vaccination not only can prevent flu illness, but has been shown to reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalizations in adults by about 40 percent.

•Flu Fact: A recent study showed flu vaccination among adults reduced the risk of being admitted to an ICU with flu by 82 percent.

While flu shots are in high demand this time of year, we will work hard to make it quick and easy for you. Remember, it takes about two weeks after a flu vaccination for the body to build up protection against flu. CDC recommends vaccination by the end of October.

With that in mind, we will hold our second Flu Shot Drive-Thru Clinics on Oct. 17 from 8-11 a.m. at both of our clinic locations in Clifton and Whitney to minimize contact and exposure due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information, visit our website at: https://bit.ly/2Smlade

GWH will continue to give flu shots on a walk-in basis during clinic business hours. We have set up a flu shot area in the front of the lobby in an effort to minimize the screening process, minimize time in the clinic, and contain the flu shot patients to one area. For more information, call the Clifton Clinic at 254-675-8621 or the Whitney clinic at 254-694-2221.
