Custer Health Conducting Walk-In Flu Clinic on October 7, Will Not Conduct COVID-19 Testing Event Next Week

Custer Health is conducting a walk-in flu clinic on October 7 at Mandan Eagles that will interrupt COVID-19 testing that week. The flu clinic event will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Protection against influenza is all the more important this flu season,” said Custer Health Administrator Erin Ourada. “Some symptoms of COVID-19 may resemble traditional flu symptoms and working to lessen or eliminate those symptoms is going to be critical as we progress further into the fall. Also, as we get further into flu season, we may experience a strain on healthcare systems that could be lessened by this simple flu protection measure. We encourage everyone who is able, to get their influenza vaccine this fall.”

Mandan Eagles is located at 1400 Collins Avenue in Mandan. Masks are required to be worn to attend this event. You can reduce your registration time by completing the form at www.custerhealth.com/influenza for each individual receiving a flu shot.

Custer Health plans on conducting a number of flu clinics throughout the next month. For more information about Morton County flu clinic events, as well as events in other counties that Custer Health serves, visit www.custerhealth.com/influenza.

All other insurances are considered out of network and Custer Health is unable to submit claims. Payment would then be due at the time of service.
