It’s not too late to get the flu vaccine

The Public Health Division of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency has wrapped up its community flu clinics for the season, and is now offering low-cost flu vaccine by appointment.

The seasonal influenza vaccine is available in both the shot and nasal mist forms through Public Health for $10 per vaccination. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay.

“It is recommended that everyone get vaccinated against the flu annually,” said El Dorado County Immunization Coordinator Cathy Dunbar.

Individuals must be at least 6 months of age to receive the influenza vaccine. The Tdap (whooping cough) booster shot and Pneumonia vaccine are also available by appointment through Public Health for $10 per shot.

To schedule a vaccination appointment call (530) 621-6100 in Placerville or (530) 573-3155 in South Lake Tahoe. For additional information about Public Health programs and services visit edcgov.us/publichealth.
