2016 - 2017 Seasonal Influenza Community Vaccination Clinics

 

Flu season is quickly approaching and Palomar Health will begin its annual Seasonal Influenza Community Vaccination Clinics in September. Questions regarding the program may be directed to Luanne Arangio-Law, R.N., M.Ed., Palomar Health Community Health Nurse Supervisor, at 442.281.3828 or luanne.arangio-law@palomarhealth.org.

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 2016 - 2017 flu vaccine will protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the season. 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 9 and older, through its community flu shot clinics. Palomar Health nurses will provide the influenza vaccine by injection to persons 9 years of age and older.

Participation in a Palomar Health Community Flu Shot Clinic is FREE during the months of December 2016 and January 2017. 

Palomar Health expresscare Clinics will also be providing seasonal flu vaccinations for persons 2 years of age and older. Visit www.PalomarHealth.org/expresscare for more information, including fees.
