Sick of being sick? Prevent future illness with immunizations being offered this Saturday, Nov. 18.

Hurley is holding its annual immunization clinic in partnership with HAP, the Genesee County Health Department, and the Genesee Health Plan at the Flint Farmers’ Market in the Ramsdell Room.

From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., both children and adults will be able to receive vaccinations free of charge.

Mrs. Colleen Grathoff, career development facilitator, believes immunizations should be a part of every individual’s campaign for good health.

“I feel that it is very important to your health to keep up to date on your immunizations,” Grathoff said. “Even as an adult, you should make sure that you are current on your immunizations.

“I learned this the hard way as I was inflicted with pertussis in January of 2015.  Pertussis is also known as whooping cough, and it is very unpleasant.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their insurance cards if they have one. If not, vaccinations will still be available.

HAP representatives will be present to provide gifts and advice about Medicare and Medicaid plans to people who come for the immunizations.

The immunizations that will be available will include:

– Diptheria & Pertussis (TDaP)
– Pneumonia
– Pneumococcal Conjugate (PCV13)
– Shingles (Zoster)
– Hepatitis B (HEP B)
– Haemophilus Influenza Type B (HiB)
– Inactivated Poliovirus (IPV)
– Rotovirus (RV)
– Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
– Varicella (VAR)
– Influenza (FLU)

Grathoff said it took her six months to recover from pertussis.

“Needless to say, I updated all of my immunizations after that.”
