It's easy to set up an onsite vaccination clinic for 10 or more people.

With the presence of COVID-19, there is additional concern about this year’s flu season.

Between September 2019 and February 2020, MedStar treated 1,033 patients in which crews identified the patient with the primary or secondary clinical impression of influenza-like illness. That was up 21.5% from the previous year.

The most prevalent ZIP codes for the 2019-2020 flu season in MedStar’s service area were:

  • 76116 with 92 responses.
  • 76119 with 91 responses.
  • 76102 with 81 responses.
  • 76112 with 81 responses.

To help prevent the incidence of flu cases, MedStar is offering mobile flu vaccine clinics again this year for 10 or more people at places of convenience for residents. Vaccines are $30 each. MedStar can either bill the organizer or individuals can pay for the vaccines with MedStar providing documentation onsite for insurance reimbursement. Payment can be made by cash, debit/credit card or Apple Pay.
