Flu/COVID-19 Vaccinations

 

Flu Vaccinations

Each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (www.cdc.gov) recommends a new flu vaccine to protect against the upcoming strains of influenza. Once again, Palomar Health will be giving the standard quadrivalent flu vaccine for the 2022-2023 flu season. We are offering a limited amount of the high-dose senior vaccine.

The vaccine 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 Vaccine Clinics. Palomar Health nurses will provide the influenza vaccine by injection to persons nine years of age and older. Education will be provided on the differences between the influenza vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccines.
