2012 - 2013 Palomar Health
Seasonal Influenza Community Vaccination Clinics
Flu season is quickly approaching and Palomar Health will begin its annual Seasoal Influenza Community Vaccination Clinics in mid-September.

Each year, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) (www.cdc.gov) recommends a new flu vaccine to protect against the upcoming strains of influenza. The 2012 - 2013 vaccine will provide protection against an A/H1N1-like virus, an A/H3N2-like virus, and an influenza B-like virus. It will not prevent illness caused by other viruses. It takes up to two weeks for protection to develop after the shot, and protection lasts six-months to one year. Palomar Health, working under national guidelines provided by the CDC, is prepared to vaccinate as many individuals as possible, age 18 and older, through its community flu shot clinics. Palomar Health nurses will provide the influenza vaccine by injection to persons 18 years of age and older.
Palomar Health expresscare walk-in health centers will also be providing seasonal flu vaccinations for persons 2 years of age and older. Visit www.pphexpresscare.com for more information, including fees.
The fee for participation in a Palomar Health Community Flu Shot Clinic will be competitively priced at $20 per person, unless otherwise noted. Medicare will be accepted for those who qualify. Payment is due at the clinic, payable by cash or check. All checks must include name and address information imprinted by the bank, and be accompanied by photo identification. Receipts are available upon request.
