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.
