As for the University of Wyoming Family Practice Center in Cheyenne, I called to inquire about getting a flu immunization. I was told that if you are an established patient there, you can get a shot for just $15 without paying for the office visit. If you are not a patient, and actually miss all the flu clinics in the Cheyenne, Wyoming area, you need to go into the doctors’ office and set yourself up as a new patient, then see the doctor (an office visit charge will apply, too), then pay for the flu shot. This flu shot and doctor’s visit may be covered by your insurance if you have it. Check your policy or health insurance customer service representative for details. The phone number for the University of Wyoming Family Practice Center is 307-632-2434 and their address is 820 East 17th Street. The shots are being given until they run out.
