Flu season is just around the corner!

The YCCHS Nurse Supervisor, Sally Slater, works with the Board of Supervisors to schedule community flu clinics in their districts to meet the residents where they live each year. Public Health Nurses will be following all CDC guidelines for the safety of everyone receiving a vaccine, and masks will be required.  

The Arizona Department of Health Services rolled out a flu shot campaign “Roll Up Your Sleeve” in hopes of upping vaccinations and lowering the risk of strain on hospital systems as the coronavirus pandemic continues. The campaign encourages people — especially health care workers, families with young children, college students and vulnerable adults — to get the flu shot as soon as possible.

Flu season typically hits its peak between January and March, but state leaders have put an extra emphasis on the vaccination because of COVID-19’s ongoing impact.  About two weeks after vaccination, antibodies develop that protect against influenza virus infection. Flu vaccines will not protect against flu-like illnesses caused by non-influenza viruses.

The CDC recommends that everyone six months and older, especially people at high-risk for flu-related complications, get a yearly flu vaccine “preferably by the end of October.” Those at high-risk include:  Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old; Adults 65 years of age and older; Pregnant women (and women up to two weeks postpartum); and Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

If you have questions about whether you should get a flu vaccine, consult your healthcare provider.
