PARENTS: Flu vaccines are now in!

You do not need an appointment but would still need to call from the parking lot when you arrive for this nurse visit.

Children younger than 5 years old–especially those younger than 2– are at higher risk of developing serious flu-related complications. A flu vaccine offers the best defense against flu and its potentially serious consequences and also can reduce the spread of flu to others. Getting vaccinated against flu has been shown to reduce flu illnesses, doctor’s visits, missed work and school days, and reduce the risk of flu-related hospitalization.

With the COVID-19 vaccine release, we want to keep you informed on the latest status.

Currently in Phase 1, the vaccine will be going to hospitals. As the supply builds up it will then go to the rest of the health care community, first responders, assisted living and nursing home residents and staff. Next, it will go to the general public starting with those over 65 of age and with those having chronic conditions which increases the risk for infection. When this process begins will depend on how quickly the first phase goes. It could be as early as this February.
