Flu, COVID vaccines at Oneida County Health
For the Star Journal
RHINELANDER – Oneida County Health Department is reminding residents it is not too late to get a flu or COVID vaccine. With the holiday season beginning, getting vaccinated in November helps ensure loved ones and the community are safeguarded against those illnesses.
In effort to make the flu and COVID-19 vaccines available to everyone, OCHD offers several programs to assist with the costs.
The Bridge Access Program provides the COVID vaccine to adults without health insurance and those whose insurance does not cover all the cost.
Vaccines for Adults (VFA) helps with flu vaccines for uninsured or underinsured adults 19 and older;
Transportation assistance provides rides to and from community clinics for people who do not have their own transportation or have trouble getting there.
Drive-up vaccines are available for those individuals who may have limited mobility and would prefer a vaccine from their vehicle.
Home visits are also an option for those who have an acute or chronic illness, limited mobility, injury, developmental disability or mental health condition that makes it difficult to leave the home.
OCHD clinic hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., located at 100 W. Keenan Street. Appointments are not required. For more information, visit oneidacountypublichealth.org or call 715-369-6111.
