Seasonal Flu Vaccine Drive-up Clinic
Mendocino County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) Public Health will hold a seasonal flu vaccine drive-up clinic on Saturday, October 1, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Seasonal flu vaccine at this clinic will be available and recommended for anyone 19 years of age and older. People 19 and older without health insurance are especially encouraged to attend this clinic.
The clinic will be held in the driveway of Public Health at 1120 S. Dora Street in Ukiah. There is a suggested donation of $15.00 per flu shot. No one 19 years and older will be turned away if they are unable to afford the donation.
Although we will not be vaccinating children at this clinic, it is encouraged for children 6 months through 18 years of age to get vaccinated for the flu as soon as possible to help protect against the seasonal flu. Please contact your pediatrician, physician, clinic, or Public Health for more information on the children’s flu vaccine.
Seasonal flu vaccine is especially recommended for people with chronic health conditions such as: diabetes, HIV, lung disease, kidney disease, heart disease, chronic liver disease, long term aspirin therapy, spinal cord injuries, seizure disorders, immune compromised or neuromuscular disorders.
