Privacy Practices

SVNA provides the standard Quadrivalent (four strains). The nurses carry a small amount of Thimerosal-Free (preservative free) which they offer to pregnant women as required by WA State regulations. The nurse may accommodate a request by non-pregnant participants for the T-Free vaccine if there are enough doses available at the time of the clinic.  SVNA generally gives the standard Quadrivalent vaccine to all non-pregnant participants unless requested otherwise.  SVNA does not offer the high dose vaccine for those over 65 years old, the egg-free vaccine, flu mist (nasal spray) or pneumonia vaccine.

 What are the payment options?

  1. SVNA can bill directly for nearly all major insurance plans (they will bill your PEBB Uniform or Kaiser plans).  The insurance information will be provided by you on the attached Patient Consent FormSVNA recommends you bring your insurance card to the clinic.
  2. Pay cash/check – If a participant is uninsured or if it’s a plan SVNA does not bill, the participant may pay in cash or by check at the time the vaccination is given.  SVNA does not take debit or credit cards.  The standard Quadrivalent flu shot is $40.
