As temperatures steadily drop and the frigid face of winter slowly approaches, the dreaded flu season is almost here.
But Wilmette residents aiming to avoid contracting the influenza virus this year can head to Village Hall tomorrow, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., to receive a flu shot.
The vaccine will be given to Wilmette residents aged 18 years and older for a $25 fee. Those who have Medicare Part B as their primary insurer can have Medicare cover the fee, though only if they don’t also belong to an HMO.
The Village website also cautioned those with egg allergies, those currently experiencing fevers and those who have had previous allergic reactions to vaccines from getting a flu shot.
