Flu shots will be available for those over 6 months of age without medical contraindication to receive the vaccine Medicare members should bring Medicare card and shot records. Donations will be accepted but not required.
Dr. Olivia Kasirye, Sacramento County Public Health Officer, said, “Getting vaccinations protects the entire community, particularly those who cannot receive vaccinations, such as infants under six months of age and people who are allergic to eggs. The earlier people get vaccinated, the better. It takes two weeks for the protective properties of the vaccine to take effect.”
This year’s vaccine will have the same immunization formula as last year’s vaccine, consisting of three components; two strains of the A virus and one strain of the B virus. A new vaccine will also be available with less egg in it for people who are allergic to eggs.
