Low-Cost Community Flu Clinics Announced in South Lake Tahoe

The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, Public Health Division will begin conducting low-cost community flu vaccination clinics in South Lake Tahoe starting September 25.

Flu shot clinics:

September 25, October 9, October 23, & October 30 from to 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe.

October 16 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Bijou School, 3501 Spruce Avenue, in the Teachers’ Lounge, South Lake Tahoe.

October 23 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the South Lake Tahoe Airport, 1901 Airport Road, South Lake Tahoe.

The seasonal influenza vaccine will be available in nasal mist and flu shot forms at the clinics. This season's nasal flu vaccine is quadrivalent, which means that it offers protection against four strains of influenza. The vaccine can be given to healthy, non-pregnant individuals that are 2 through 49 years of age. "Everyone 6 months of age or older should get a flu vaccine each year for the best protection against the flu," said Lynnan Svensson, Supervising Public Health Nurse with the Public Health Division. "It is especially important to vaccinate high-risk individuals, such as children under age five, people 65 years and older, pregnant women and people with chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease. Also, it is critical for health care workers and those individuals taking care of these high-risk persons to be immunized." The cost of the vaccine is $10, but no one will be denied service due to inability to pay; cash or check accepted. Parents should bring their child's immunization records. Updated information on the community flu clinics will be posted to www.edcgov.us/publichealth and on the County Flu Hotline at (530) 621-6188.
