Have you gotten your flu vaccine? It's not too late! It's National Influenza Vaccination Week.

  December 7- 13, 2014 is National Influenza Vaccination Week.
Itís not too late to be vaccinated against the flu! The flu season continues into the spring and most cases of the flu usually occur in January or February. Visit our Influenza Information page to learn more about the flu and flu vaccinations.

INFLUENZA VACCINATION

Itís Not Too Late to Get your Flu Vaccination!

The flu season can last into the spring and as long as flu viruses are circulating, itís not too late to get vaccinated. In fact, flu activity usually peaks in January or February, so getting vaccinated now can protect you at the time of the year when you are most likely to be exposed to the flu.

Everyone 6 months of age and older should be vaccinated against the flu every year. If you have health insurance, your best source for vaccination is your regular clinic or provider office. Flu vaccinations are also available in community settings such as pharmacies and some community clinics. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) is also offering flu vaccines at no-cost at its public health centers throughout Los Angeles County. No appointments are needed for LA County Department of Public Health vaccination clinics.
