Free flu shot clinic this Thursday

11/9/2011

Plumas County Public Health will provide a free flu vaccination clinic at the Plumas County Public Health Agency in Quincy Thursday, Nov. 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. Appointments are not necessary; folks are invited to just walk in. Flu forms are available at the clinic or can be downloaded at http://www.plumascounty.us/index.aspx?nid=2069.

Everyone 6 months and older should consider getting a flu vaccine each year. Occasionally an individual may be advised by their health care provider to not get a flu vaccine due to a contraindication (such as an egg allergy).

While everyone should consider getting a flu vaccine each flu season, it is especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications:

—Pregnant women.

—Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old.

—People 50 years of age and older.

—People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney or liver disease and conditions affecting the immune system.

—People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities

—People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from the flu, such as the following:

—Health care workers.

—Household contacts of people at high risk for complications from the flu.

—Household contacts and out-of-home caregivers of children younger than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated).

Children younger than 9 who are getting a flu vaccine for the first time will need two doses of flu vaccine.

For more information, contact Plumas County Public Health at 283-6330 or (800) 801-6330 or http://www.plumascounty.us. Organizers hope to see folks on Thursday.
