North country residents looking to receive an early influenza vaccination may be able to do so between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Watertown Urban Mission, 247 Factory St.
Flu shots for adults will be administered through Rite Aid. Insurance plans accepted will include Medicaid, Medicare, Managed Medicaid, Tricare, Excellus, Martins Point and most other insurance plans. The cost with no insurance will be $29.99.
According to an Urban Mission news release, the idea to host the vaccination day came from a member church delegate who wanted to see preventive care more available to families in need.
