WAUSAU, Wis. – Aspirus VNA Home Health is offering a unique flu clinic on Oct. 12 for children and families.

The event, Say Boo to the Flu, is a Halloween-themed flu clinic being held at Aspirus Pediatrics Clinic in the Aspirus Plaza Drive Clinics building on the Aspirus Wausau Hospital Campus. The clinic runs from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. and offers fun, interactive games for families and free giveaways to help kids forget about their flu vaccinations.

Flu shots at the clinic cost $30 cash, or Aspirus VNA Home Health will bill insurance.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all healthy children ages 6 months to adult get vaccinated against the seasonal flu, and Aspirus is making the experience of getting a seasonal flu shot more enjoyable and less scary for children.

Say Boo to the Flu is made possible through a national campaign and partnership with the Visiting Nurse Associations of America, Families Fighting Flu and The Clorox Company.
