Fight the Flu

By Meenu Gupta

The Weller PTA is joining forces with a company called FluBusters, Inc to help fight the flu by sponsoring a Flu Clinic. "We are still in planning stages, we need to make the economics of this work because we need to bring on a nurse or multiple nurses to give the vaccination. We are planning to open it to the entire community, to all Milpitas residents who wish to be vaccinated for both the seasonal flu as well as Swine flu," said President of Weller PTA, Robert Jung. Milpitas residents who wish to pre-register should do so now.

The pre-registration cost of the vaccinations will be $25, for seasonal Flu shot, $30 for Seasonal Flu Mist. Cost for the H1N1 (Swine) Flu shot is yet to be determined once the shot is released to FluBusters. "We have the pre-registration prices for the seasonal flu, we don't have the exact price for the Swine flu vaccination, we have a range as Flubusters will make the final call," said Jung. The tentative price range is $5 - $15. Medicaid and Medicare, Plan B will be accepted.

If you are interested, please fill out the form available online and return it to the Weller PTA by Friday, October 23. The date has been extended from October 16 for a week. People who would have pre-registered will be contacted with an appointment and payment options once the clinic is confirmed. You may return the form via email wellerinfo@milpitaspta.net or send it to Weller PTA, 345 Boulder Street, Milpitas.

If you have any questions, please write to wellerinfo@milpitaspta.net. "We are going to primarily look at the school age vaccinations, vaccinations that are for infants we would not do for example. We are currently doing pre-registration and in the pre-registration form age has to be specified," said Jung. "We are only providing the clinic as a community service we are recommending flu shots, people should check with their own doctors to get their appropriate opinion for their situation."
