The convergence of COVID-19 and influenza season will make it more difficult to discern which virus is causing symptoms. The possibility of getting both viruses at the same time could be an extra inconvenience to some, or even deadly to others. Plus keeping our kids healthy and in school is so important! That's why we're encouraging everyone to be on the safe side and get their flu shot this season. For your own health, the health of those you interact with daily, and the health of our entire community, fight back against the flu and make your appointment for a flu shot today.
The CDC recommends annual flu vaccines for everyone 6 months and older, especially those at higher risk of complications including pregnant women, older adults and young children.
What Are We Doing to Make Flu Shots Safe & Easy This Year?
Due to COVID-19, we are offering flu shot clinics in a different way. All flu shots are by appointment only to help manage crowds. It will be quick and easy: we can accommodate up to four people from a family together in 10-minute appointment.
Preparing for Your Flu Shot Appointment:
- Dress yourself and family members in short sleeved shirts.
- Have infants and toddlers dressed in a diaper or shorts.
- Don't forget your face mask.
Be prepared to have your temperature taken and to answer a few screening questions & put on your mask before you enter. We'll give you a mask to wear while you're in the clinic if you don't have your own.
