Flu clinics set

The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, Public Health Division, will begin conducting low-cost community flu vaccination clinics starting Sept. 19, with additional clinics offered through mid-November. The seasonal influenza vaccine will be available in nasal mist and flu shot forms at the clinics.

This season’s nasal flu vaccine is quadrivalent, which means that it offers protection against four strains of influenza. The vaccine can be given to healthy, non-pregnant individuals that are 2 through 49 years old.

“Everyone 6 months of age or older should get a flu vaccine each year for the best protection against the flu,” said Lynnan Svensson, supervising public health nurse with the Public Health Division. “It is especially important to vaccinate high-risk individuals, such as children under age 5, people 65 years and older, pregnant women and people with chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease. Also, it is critical for health care workers and those individuals taking care of these high-risk persons to be immunized.”

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

    Socialized medicine!!!! Shouldn't we let the free market decide who gets vaccinated? As Mr. Potter would say, influenza reduces the surplus population.

    Foaming, the flu vaccination myth. It has around the same success record as the war on poverty. http://www.alive.com/articles/view/16541/the_flu_vaccine_myth

    Good flu vaccine article, cookie. HERE is another. (I've never had a flu shot, don't get "the flu", and would have to be literally tied down before being given one.)

    Excellent piece Evelyn, the ability to control words, numbers and language is how control over individuals is accomplished. For our own good. I read about the use of the word "good" sometime back that you would like. I don't remember the author or who said it but it went something like this, "it can be said that a person who could shoot their grandmother from 500 yards is a "good" shot, but it cannot be said that they are a "good" person". Americans have lost the ability to question the use of words and how they can be twisted to cause people to fall in line and be influenced to give up their freedom of choice. I used the term semantic cessation in a previous tread which is the repeated use of a word or phrase to the point where it looses its meaning. Racism and hate are two perfect examples. Foaming is the perfect tool for the government with nothing but blind allegiance and all the arrogance to match.

    Cookie, words are important. Lawyers love to play with words.
