MedStar is offering mobile flu vaccine clinics this year to help prevent the incidence of flu cases in our service area.
Between October 2018 and December 15, 2019, MedStar crews treated 1,348 patients in which our crews identified the patient with the primary or secondary clinical impression of Influenza Like Illness (ILI).
Average age of patients is 45, with an age range of 1 month to 104 years old.
The most prevalent zip codes for the 2019 flu season in our service area are:
- zip of 76102 with 34 Responses
- zip of 76116 with 40 Responses
- zip of 76119 with 31 Responses
Hospitals in our area are experiencing significant influx of patients with the flu, leading to increased hospital occupancy, and consequently, ED overcrowding and patient throughput challenges.
We’d like to help reduce that number this year, so MedStar is being pro-active by offering mobile flu vaccine clinics for 10 or more people at places of convenience for YOU!
Vaccines are $25 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.
