REMSA Offers In-Home Flu Shots for Homebound Residents

Posted: Updated:

In an effort to protect Reno and Sparks residents from influenza and pneumonia, the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA) is providing in-home visits to homebound residents to administer seasonal flu and pneumonia shots until Oct. 12 or until vaccine supplies are no longer available. REMSA's homebound flu shot program is designed to offer critical health protection for individuals who are unable to leave their home due to illness or disability. 

REMSA is encouraging the elderly and those with chronic health problems to participate in the important mobile community health program, as they are more likely to develop serious complications from the flu and pneumonia if not protected.  Homebound individuals considered high-risk due to asthma, diabetes or heart disease are also urged to get a flu and/or pneumonia shot.

Homebound flu shots are $38 and pneumonia shots are $91.  To schedule an appointment or for additional information, call the REMSA Flu Hotline at 775-858-5741.
