JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Solantic has announced the launch of its flu vaccination program for the 2010-2011 flu season at the company's 34 walk-in urgent care centers statewide.
Solantic also provides offsite flu clinic services for those companies seeking to protect their employees.
The vaccine is priced at $30. Medicare and some insurance companies cover the cost of the flu shot. Solantic also offers the flu mist nasal spray for $40 and the pneumonia vaccine for $60.
The 2010-2011 seasonal flu vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses: an H3N1 virus, an influenza B virus and the H1N1 virus. Antibodies begin providing protection approximately two weeks after vaccination.
