Flu Clinic

 

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year. For more information, click the Flu.gov button below! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine, each year. This recommendation has been in place since Feb. 24, 2010, when the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted for “universal” flu vaccination in the U.S. to expand protection against the flu to more people.

 

While everyone six months and older should get a flu vaccine each year, it’s especially important for some people to get vaccinated. Those people include the following:

 

  • People who are at high risk of developing serious complications (like pneumonia) if they get sick with the flu.

  • People who have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.

  • Pregnant women.

  • People younger than five years, especially those younger than two, and people 65 years and older.

  • A complete list is available at People Who Are at High Risk of Developing Flu-Related Complications.

  • People who live with or care for others who are at high risk of developing serious complications (see list above).

  • Household contacts and caregivers of people with certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease.

  • Household contacts and caregivers of infants younger than six months old.

  • Health care personnel.

 

Flu vaccines are available through PCPH for children and adults.

 

Medicaid, Medicare and many other insurance plans are accepted and cover the full cost of the vaccination. Vaccine is provided at no cost to uninsured children through the Vaccines for Children Program.
