Free Flu Shots Available at All Neighborhood Health Locations
Last week’s winter weather serves as a good reminder that Neighborhood Health offers both telehealth visits and in-clinic appointments. We are here to help you even if you are at home or work and cannot get to one of our 12 locations. Call 615-227-3000 to make an appointment.
The ability to connect with a medical professional regardless of weather conditions is especially important as Nashville is currently trending highest in the nation in flu and COVID type illnesses.
If you have not yet received a flu vaccine this year, Neighborhood Health is still offering free flu shots at all its locations. Everyone over the age of 6 months is encouraged to get a flu shot, unless certain underlying conditions or allergies exist, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 615-227-3000.
“Neighborhood Health is working hard to protect the health of all in our community. We are the ONLY health care provider in all Middle Tennessee that has made flu shots completely free for everyone, regardless of insurance status, since the beginning of this flu season. This is free without an asterisk or limitation: We want EVERYONE to #BreatheEasier.”
Experts suggest getting the flu and COVID vaccines at the same time to save trips and scheduling headaches. Free COVID boosters are available at the Downtown Clinic in Nashville, with a special emphasis on vaccinating the homeless population. Due to limited supply of the new booster, free COVID vaccines will be available at other Neighborhood Health locations during special vaccination events and as they become more readily available.
Neighborhood Health has locations throughout Nashville, in Madison and in Lebanon. Specific clinic locations and hours, telehealth visits, and more are available by visiting www.neighborhoodhealthtn.org.
Neighborhood Health is a private non-profit network of neighborhood health centers that has served the people of Middle Tennessee for almost 50 years without regard to their insurance status or ability to pay. Through ten clinics in Nashville, 1 in Lebanon, and 1 in Gallatin, Neighborhood Health provides medical, prenatal, dental and behavioral health care to 30,000 underserved people of all ages, more than half of whom have no health insurance.
