Flu shots from the Chadron Medical Clinic will be available at the expo as well as blood draws from Chadron Community Hospital. Kaus shares tips on how to prepare for either of these. The blood draw requires an 8-12 hour fast. Individuals are requested to bring their insurance cards or money if not covered by Medicare/Medicaid. The cost of the flu shot will be $40.
