"With the holidays approaching, it is the perfect time of year to remind your loved ones to get their flu vaccination," said Steve Pellito, National Director of Wellness Services for Maxim Health Systems. "We continue to urge people to get vaccinated and visit http://www.FindaFluShot.com to locate flu clinics," he added.
Maxim provides flu shots to children aged 9 and older unless restricted by a state regulation or law. For children under 9 years of age, parents should contact their pediatrician. Maxim accepts Medicare Part B with no co-pay required, when Medicare Part B is the primary medical insurance.
