Mahoning County flu-shot clinics this week
Mahoning County District Board of Health is offering flu shot clinics at several locations this week. No appointment is necessary. Bring insurance cards, driver’s license, Medicaid and Medicare cards so the cost of the vaccine can be billed. Most private insurances are accepted. With proof of insurance, the flu vaccine is free.
The health board is a Vaccines for Children Program provider and has limited opportunities for children that are uninsured to receive the vaccine for free.
