Neighborhood Health is now offering free flu vaccinations for children and adults at all 11 of its community clinics while supplies last. In addition, free pneumonia vaccinations are available to all adults who need them. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 615-227-3000.
Neighborhood Health plans to make flu shots available throughout the 2020-21 flu season. The non-profit network of community health centers is the only health care provider in Tennessee currently offering free flu, pneumonia and shingles vaccinations to the community.
Everyone over the age of six months is encouraged to get a flu shot this year, unless certain underlying conditions or allergies exist. This is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We hope that everyone in the community will protect themselves and their loved ones and schedule an appointment to be vaccinated,” said Brian Haile, CEO of Neighborhood Health.
“Anyone on our sliding fee scale or anyone with insurance can get the vaccines at no additional cost for the shots. For a family of four, this means anyone making less than $4,300 a month. We simply want to keep our community safe by providing access and availability to these vaccinations.”
