FAIRBORN — Wright State Physicians Family Medicine is offering influenza vaccinations at its walk-in flu shot clinic on Wednesday and Friday afternoons in October at the Wright State Physicians Health Center on the campus of Wright State University, 725 University Blvd. A special clinic also will be offered on Saturday, Oct. 24.

Influenza is a serious and contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. The flu causes millions of illnesses, hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands of deaths each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months and older.

To get a flu shot at the Wright State Physicians Health Center, go to the second floor of the building. Patients must present a valid photo ID and insurance card at the time of check-in. Most insurance companies cover the influenza vaccine, but a copay may be required. Payment is due at the time of check-in for self-pay patients.

– Early access day, 1-4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30.

– 1-4 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays in October.
