The walk-in clinic will be held Wednesday from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M. at the Deschutes County Health Services Building on N-E Courtney off of 27th.


Heather Kaisner, the Immunization Director for the county, tells us who should get the shot.


"So really anyone who is 50 years or older and wants to protect themselves against shingles.  As far as our clinic goes, anybody without health insurance or whose health insurance doesn't cover the shingles vaccine."


Kaisner advises people to check if their insurance covers the shingles vaccine.  People with Medicare Part D are not eligible.


The vaccine will cost $22 dollars, but normally it would cost aound $150 dollars without insurance.


Shingles is a viral infection that comes from the same virus that causes chickenpox.  It causes a painful rash and the older the person, the greater the odds of getting it.
