It's not too late to get a flu vaccine

Submitted by Shawn Funk

Lafene Health Center continues to offer influenza vaccines as well as the Moderna COVID-19 initial vaccine series and the updated COVID-19 vaccine booster.

Appointments for vaccines can be scheduled through the myLAFENE+ patient portal or by calling 785-532-6544. A vaccination administration fee will be assessed with each vaccine. Lafene will file these charges to insurance if insurance information is provided.

While the flu season usually peaks between December and March, it can last as late as May. Because it takes about two weeks after getting the flu shot for the vaccination to protect you against the flu, you can technically get the flu shot through February and have it still provide some benefit. Vaccines can still be beneficial as long as flu viruses are circulating.
