Low-Cost Community Flu Clinics Announced in El Dorado County

 

(Placerville, CA) - The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, Public Health Division will begin conducting low-cost community flu vaccination clinics on September 27, 2018, with additional clinics offered through November. Seasonal influenza vaccine will be available in flu shot form at the clinics. 

"Everyone six months of age or older should get a flu vaccine each year for the best protection against the flu," said Lynnan Svensson, Nursing Program Manager with Public Health. "It is especially important to vaccinate high-risk people, such as children under age five, people 65 years and older, pregnant women and people with chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease. It is also critical for health care workers and people taking care of high-risk persons to be immunized."  

The cost per vaccine is $10, but no one will be denied service due to inability to pay; cash or check accepted. Parents should bring their child's immunization records. Updated information on flu clinics will be posted to www.edcgov.us/publichealth and on the County Flu Hotline at (530) 621-6188.
