County Executive Steinhaus Announces Flu Immunization Clinics in Dutchess

Dutchess County Executive, William R. Steinhaus announced today the schedule for the County’s 2004 Flu and Pneumonia Vaccination Clinics. Flu and Pneumonia Vaccination Clinics are conducted each year in the fall by the Dutchess County Department of Health throughout the county. This year these clinics will be held from October 12 through November 30, 2004.

County Executive Steinhaus said, “Dutchess County has always had a strong commitment to the health of our community and its citizens, particularly our seniors and our youth, two of our county’s greatest assets. That commitment will continue and is reinforced each fall by offering flu and pneumonia vaccinations through our Department of Health. The health of our community is reflected in the health of each of its individual residents and having the right
immunizations at the right time for the right people is key to successful health outcomes.” The County Executive noted that during last year’s round of Flu Immunization Clinics, almost 5000 county residents received their flu shot; mostly senior citizens.

The County Executive said representatives from various county departments will be available at the clinics to distribute information about programs and services in Dutchess County that are important to seniors. These include such programs as: the HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program, which helps underwrite the cost of heating fuel oil for seniors) and Home Weatherization program through the County’s Division of Aging Services; and services available
through the Social Services Department’s Adult Protective Services Unit.

These clinics will offer the flu vaccine to anyone 50 and older, anyone 18 and older with a health problem, and health care workers and household contacts of those at highest risk of complications from the flu.

All clinics will offer pneumonia vaccine to:

  • Adults 18-64 years of age with certain chronic medical conditions; and,
  • Adults 65 years of age and older.

The fee for flu vaccine is $15. The fee for pneumonia vaccine is $20.00. Both vaccines are covered by Medicare Part B. Medicare cards must be brought to the clinic. Adults enrolled in Medicare HMO’s may be required to pay the fee.

The following is a list of the Dutchess County flu and pneumonia vaccination clinics for 2004.
