MedStar is offering mobile flu vaccine clinics this year to help prevent the incidence of flu cases in our service area.
Between October 2018 and September 2019, MedStar crews treated 1,036 patients in which our crews identified the patient with the primary clinical impression of Influenza Like Illness (ILI).
Average age of patients was 48, with a range of 2 months to 104 years old.
Most prevalent zip codes in our service area were:
- zip of 76102 with 78 Cases
- zip of 76105 with 57 Cases
- zip of 76112 with 98 Cases
- zip of 76116 with 81 Cases
Our busiest months for ILI cases were:
- December: 7.4/day
- January: 5.6/day
- February: 5.3/day
- November: 3.9/day
Hospitals in our area experienced significant influx of patients with the flu, leading to increased hospital occupancy, and consequently, ED overcrowding and patient throughput challenges.
We’d like to help reduce that number this year, so MedStar is being pro-active by offering mobile flu vaccine clinics for 10 or more people at places of convenience for YOU!
Vaccines are $25 each and we can either bill the organizer based on a roster provided by the organizer, or individuals can pay for the vaccines with us providing documentation on-site for insurance reimbursement. Payments can be made by cash, debit/credit card or Apple Pay.
