Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

Join the Germinators and the Lassen County Public Health Department at the 2019 Annual Drive-Thru Flu Clinic today, October 9th, from 9:00a.m. until 5:30p.m. at the Lassen County Fairground’s Jensen Hall Parking Lot.

This free flu shot clinic is a great opportunity to protect yourself and your family against the flu without having to schedule an appointment – in fact you can protect yourself from the flu without even having to get out of your car. This free clinic is for anyone ages 2 years and older.

The Center for Disease Control recommends that everyone age 6-months and older get the flu vaccine each year. Seasonal flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by flu viruses. It spreads between people and can cause mild to severe illness. In some severe cases, the flu can lead to death. In the United States, flu season occurs in the fall and winter and usually peaks in January or February.

Some flu related complications include pneumonia and dehydration. Certain groups are more likely to experience these complications including seniors, children and people with chronic health conditions. Therefore, it is important to take preventative measures to avoid the flu.

When Jeremy the Germ shows up for flu season you can be a Germinator and defeat the flu by getting vaccinated and washing your hands. It is important to stay home if you do become sick to help your body recover and to prevent infecting others.

For more information about the Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic contact the Lassen County Public Health Department at 530-251-8183.
