RSV vaccine for Medicare Part D patients available at Adams County Health Department
QUINCY — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently endorsed recommendations for the use of the new RSV vaccines for individuals ages 60 years and older.
The Adams County Health Department is offering RSV vaccines to Medicare Part D patients. People with this insurance can receive the vaccine for $0 co-pay.
The CDC recommends adults ages 60 years and older may receive a single dose of RSV vaccine, based on discussions between the patient and health care provider. RSV vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines.
RSV vaccine can prevent lower respiratory tract disease caused by respiratory syncytial virus. RSV can cause illness in people of all ages but is especially serious for infants and older adults. Individuals with chronic medical conditions, weakened immune systems or who live in long-term care facilities are at highest risk of serious illness and complications from RSV.
The Adams County Health Department’s immunization clinic is open on a walk-in basis Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 .pm.
