2015 - 2016 Palomar Health
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 760.739.2005 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 2014 - 2015 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. 

The fee for participation in a Palomar Health Community Flu Shot Clinic is competitively priced at $20 per person. Medicare is accepted for those who qualify. (Seniors must bring their red, white and blue Medicare card). Payment is due at the clinic, payable by cash or check. All checks must include name and address information imprinted by the bank. Receipts are available upon request.

Palomar Health partners with the San Diego Department of Health to provide free flu shots for those in need. 

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.
