Local clinics say flu shots are hard to get this season

Health Officials Say Now is The Time to Get Your Flu Shot

Health officials say it is never too early to be vaccinated so hopefully the HealthMap Vaccine Finder will help you and your family stay well ahead of flu season.

The schedule for Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center area flu clinics, including medical offices in North Hollywood, Mission Hills, Santa Clarita and Panorama City is available here.

The CDC is recommending everyone 6 months old and older get a flu vaccination. For those who do not have insurance coverage, the flu vaccine may be available for free to those who qualify.

Vaccines to fight the flu can also protect women during and after pregnancy and protect a baby after delivery, the CDC said. The health department is also collaborating with the Arkansas Immunization Action Coalition to produce materials for hour- long flu prevention workshops in community based organizations.

Schippert said there is still a small percentage of the population that believes you can get the flu from the flu shot. There is no charge for those enrolled in a Cornell health insurance plan. "We need to protect the elderly and the very young".

The flu vaccine consent form can be downloaded (www.gachd.org/glynnflu) and filled out ahead of time to make the process go even quicker.

According to the CDC, there were 180 pediatric deaths reported during the 2017-2018 flu season, breaking a record set back during the 2012-2013 season.

Vocalists Daniel Emmet and Glennis Grace were also losers this season, along with comedian Vicki Barbalok and Samuel J. Simon Cowell called her a "trendsetter" and fellow judge Howie Mandel said she was a "superstar in the making".

The flu vaccine is safe and does not cause the flu.

Though you may still get some side effects: runny nose, a sore throat or a cough those symptoms are limited and not the actual flu.

Fee flu shots will be offered to the public starting September 28 at several libraries throughout the county.

"We hope people will get the vaccine, not just for themselves, but to protect people in their household and people they care for", Dillaha said.

In coming weeks, the Health Department will be administering the vaccine to public school students around the state and offering it to the public at mass clinics at each of its local health units.

For more information on the clinics, call the Iroquois County Public Health Department at 815-432-2483.

Floyd County Health Department hours are Monday - Wednesday 8 am to 5 pm, Thursday 8 am to 6:30 pm, and Friday 8 am to 2 pm.
