According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), taking the influenza vaccination can:

  • Reduce flu illness
  • Reduce the need for doctor visits 
  • Reduce the number of missed work and school days 
  • Prevent flu-related hospitalization

Get a flu shot BEFORE the virus begins to spread throughout the City and the country. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against the flu to develop in the body. It is recommended people get a shot before the end of October, but receiving it later can still be beneficial. The CDC has a list of groups recommended for vaccination for 2021-22; as well as info for high-risk individuals.

Flu vaccines protect against the three or four viruses research suggests will be most common each season. For 2021-2022, the CDC recommended the trivalent (three-component) vaccines contain:

  • A/Guangdong-Maonan/SWL1536/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus (updated)
  • A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2)-like virus (updated)
  • B/Washington/02/2019 (B/Victoria lineage)-like virus (updated)

On the day of your shot appointment, please wear your mask and follow social distancing rules and guidelines

Don’t miss out this opportunity for a FREE flu shot – first come, first served. For more information about this flu season, visit the CDC website. If you have questions about the City’s flu shot clinic, please contact Michelle Gifford at 972-941-7227.
