KCMO HEALTH DEPARTMENT NOW OFFERING FLU SHOTS

The Kansas City, Missouri Health Department is now offering flu vaccinations to protect residents during the 2019/2020 flu season.

“October is the best month to get the flu shot. It takes about two weeks after the shot for the body’s antibodies to develop and fight against the flu,” said Tiffany Wilkinson, Division Manager, Communicable Disease Prevention and Public Health Preparedness. “We always hope to have a light flu season in Kansas City. Part of that is for people to get vaccinated early in the fall, before flu season begins.”
 
Flu shots are available at 2400 Troost Ave. during regular clinic hours. Normal operating hours are:

  • 8 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays
  • 8 a.m. – Noon on Thursdays

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 6 months and older receive a flu shot each year, unless they have a severe, life-threatening allergy to the flu vaccine.
