The Franciscan Health Immunization department wants everyone to get vaccinated against the flu or pneumonia.
Clinics are on a first come, first served basis. Some paper work will be required and then you may get your vaccination of choice. Immunizations are available to people six months and older. It is highly recommended that all individuals take the flu shot annually. The pneumonia immunization is recommended for individuals who have frequent upper respiratory infections or chronic medical conditions.
The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. Vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations. Most experts believe that flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, eyes or possibly their nose. You may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Some people, especially young children and people with weakened immune systems, might be able to infect others for an even longer time.
Cash or check payment is expected at time of vaccination. We also offer the new quadrivalent vaccine (4 strains covered) this year and all versions are preservative free.
