10/24/2018 | 5-7 PM | North Clinic

Flu Shot Clinic in Crookston With cold weather creeping in and flu season just around the corner, RiverView’s North Clinic, Crookston, will be holding public flu shot clinics from 5 to 7 pm on the following days:
• Tuesday, Oct. 16th
• Wednesday, Oct. 24th
• Thursday, Nov. 1st

RiverView Clinics in East Grand Forks, Fertile and Red Lake Falls will all offer flu shots during regular business hours.

Those who wish to have their insurance billed will be asked to present their insurance card. The cost of the flu vaccine is covered by Medicare and Medicaid, so individuals with those insurances are asked to present their insurance cards at the time of the shot as well.

If you have a child or are an adult with an aversion to shots, please ask your nurse to use “Buzzy’’ in administering the shot. Buzzy is an FDA approved device used to help block the pain of injections, IVs, burning from medications and even muscle soreness. Buzzy is available for use at all RiverView Clinics and has been given the thumbs up by users of all ages.

Appointments for the flu shot clinics are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling the following numbers: Crookston’s North Clinic, 218-281-9595; East Grand Forks, 218-773-1390; Fertile, 218-945-6695; and Red Lake Falls, 218-253-4606.
