  • Flu Shot

As part of National Influenza Vaccination Week, District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) is reminding families that it's not too late to get the flu vaccine. Certain people are at greater risk for serious complications from the flu. "Flu vaccination coverage estimates from past seasons have shown that few people get vaccinated against influenza after the end of November", according to the agency.

Flu season is on the rise. "Flu vaccine is the best way to protect both children and adults from serious complications, hospitalization, and in many cases, death".

Indianapolis, In. - The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is urging anyone who hasn't already gotten a flu shot to do so now.

No appointments are needed to get a flu shot during these events, and shots will be provided to anyone aged six months or older who wishes to receive one. "Anyone can get the flu, including healthy individuals, and getting the flu vaccine is the easiest and safest way to protect yourself, your friends and your family this season".

Flu Shot

The Kern County Public Health Services Department offers flu shots for $9.00 at our Public Health Clinics, which are located in Bakersfield (1800 Mt. Vernon Avenue), Buttonwillow, Delano, Shafter, Rosamond, Ridgecrest and Taft.

"The flu shot takes one to two weeks to produce immunity, and flu season usually peaks in January through March in MS", said MSDH Interim State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs.

People can help stop the spread of flu by getting vaccinated, washing hands frequently, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home when they're sick.

Antiviral drugs may shorten the duration or lessen the severity of the flu if started within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms.
