SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County's Healthy Aging Program is encouraging residents age 60 and over to participate in its annual Drive-Thru Flu Shot clinic.
The clinic is on Saturday at the County Government Center in the southeast parking lot. Clinic hours will be from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
In addition to offering the regular flu vaccine, this year a new, high-dose vaccine will be available.
The high-dose vaccine was developed specifically for those older than 65 and has four times more micrograms of each of the three viral strains found in the regular influenza vaccine.
Most Medadvantage plans and Medicare Part B will be accepted. Donations will also be accepted. A $20 donation for the regular flu vaccine and a $28 donation for the new, high-dose vaccine is suggested.
