With the presence of COVID-19, there is additional concern about this year’s flu season!
Between September 2019 and February 2020, MedStar crews treated 1,033 patients in which our crews identified the patient with the primary or secondary clinical impression of Influenza Like Illness (ILI).
That was up 21.5% from the previous year!
The most prevalent zip codes for the 2019-2020 flu season in our service area were:
- 76116 with 92 Responses
- 76119 with 91 Responses
- 76102 with 81 Responses (tie)
- 76112 with 81 Responses (tie)
To help prevent the incidence of flu cases in our service area, MedStar is offering mobile flu vaccine clinics again this year for 10 or more people at places of convenience for you!
Vaccines are $30 each and we can either bill the organizer based on a roster provided by the organizer, or individuals can pay for the vaccines with us providing documentation on-site for insurance reimbursement. Payments can be made by cash, debit/credit card or Apple Pay.
To schedule an on-site flu vaccine clinic, please visit: https://www.medstar911.org/medstar-mobile-flu-vaccine-program/
Generally, on-site vaccine clinics are limited locations within, or immediately adjacent to MedStar’s Service Area.
