ASU-Newport to host free flu shot clinic

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas State University-Newport will host the Jackson County Flu Shot Clinic on Friday, Nov. 4, in the ASUN Center for the Arts.

No appointment is necessary for the shots, which will be administered between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

There is also no charge for the flu vaccine; but, to help cover costs, the Arkansas Department of Health will charge insurance companies for the cost of giving the vaccine. Those who do not have insurance, or if insurance does not pay for the vaccine, the vaccine will be given at no charge.

Additionally, the St. Bernards Mobile Mammogram Unit will provide mammograms to women, 40 years or older, who have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months.

Those wishing to have a mammogram must bring a driver's license, insurance, Medicare or Medicaid card. Those who do not have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, may qualify for a free exam through the BREASTCARE Program.
