Where Can You Get a Flu Vaccine in Palo Alto?

Flu season is here and with at least two new strains already being passed around, here's where you and your family can get this year's vaccine.

 

Flu season usually begins in October and with at least two new strains of influenza being passed around this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are recommending everyone get a flu shot.

Developed for the 2012-13 flu season, the vaccine will protect against three different flu viruses and is recommended for everyone six months of age and older. A person’s immune protection from vaccination declines over time and annual vaccination is needed for optimal protection.

Some of the ocations are:

  • St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1425 Bay Road, East Palo Alto.
  • East Palo Alto City Hall
  • Ravenswood Family Health Center on Bay Road in East Palo Alto.

Flu shots are also available at CVS (University, El Camino Real and Middlefield Ave. locations), Walgreens (University, Middlefield, Blake Wilbur, El Camino Real) and Safeway (Middlefield Road).

Information for the seasonal flu vaccine may be found on the health department's website or by calling the flu hotline at 586-466-7923.

Is it true that flu shots are free for everyone this year under Obamacare?

No, unless you call it free when your insurance pays for the shot and the group waives the administration fee such as at PAMF
