Where to Get a Flu Shot?
January 2017 - It's not too late to vaccinate against the flu! The California Department of Public Health is reporting an increase in flu cases across the state. Most cases have been the H3N2 type, which has historically been a more serious strain, especially among older people and young children. Flu shots are widely available from health care providers and in many retail establishments. El Dorado County Public Health also offers flu shots by appointment for only $10. To schedule a flu shot appointment with El Dorado County Public Health, please call (530) 621-6100 in Placerville or (530) 573-3155 in South Lake Tahoe.

Immunizations are generally low cost or free for people who have no health insurance, and for children with CHDP, Medi-Cal or who are underinsured (their health plan doesn't cover vaccines). We offer the flu shot to the general public for $10 per vaccine (although no one is turned away due to inability to pay for the flu vaccine.) Please call us if you have additional questions.
SHOTS FOR INFANTS AND ADOLESCENTS
All recommended pediatric vaccines are available by appointment at Public Health. The vaccines are low cost or free for children who don't have health insurance or who are underinsured. Public Health also has childhood vaccines at no cost to qualified people through Community Vaccination Clinics.

SHOTS FOR PRE-TEENS, TEENS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS
As children get older, protection from some early childhood vaccines can wear off. Pre-teens, teens and college students can benefit from many vaccines.
Pre-Teens and Teens
Did you know that meningitis can be fatal? Numerous cases of bacterial meningitis have occurred in high school students in the Sacramento area. Meningitis can kill in a matter of days! The good news is that most types of bacterial meningitis can be prevented through vaccines.
SHOTS FOR ADULTS
Some adults think the vaccines they got as children can protect them for the rest of their lives. Generally, this is true, except that:
- Some adults were never vaccinated as children
- Newer vaccines were not available when some adults were children
- Immunity can fade over time
- As we age, we become more susceptible to disease caused by common infection (e.g., flu, pneumococcus)
