Estero Fire Rescue is again offering flu vaccines to help protect the public from influenza.

A flu vaccine is needed every year because flu viruses are constantly changing. The vaccine works by causing antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.

To get your vaccine, stop by the Estero Fire Rescue administration office at 21500 Three Oaks Parkway.

They also will be offering flu shots at the Village Hall at 4 p.m., Wednesday, October 12.

Insurance is accepted as well as Medicare Part B. If you do not have insurance, EFR will accept cash, check or credit card.

Regular vaccines $27.00 (self pay)
High Dose (recommended for those 65 and older) $47.00 (self pay)

You may also schedule a flu shot clinic at your business or community location. Contact Susan Lindenmuth at Estero Fire Rescue (239) 390-8000 to schedule a flu vaccine clinic.
