Free Flu Vaccine Clinics in Your Area
It’s not too late to get the flu vaccine this season.
Simply visit the Alameda County Public Health Department online or call them at 510-267-3230 to get a list of free clinics in your area. And for a current map of flu cases nationwide, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The flu vaccine is recommended for all kids (and adults!) over 6 months old, and most kids only need a nasal spray instead of an injection.* For full protection, 2 doses may be required for children under age 9.
Students with asthma and other conditions may not be eligible to receive the nasal spray. Their medical history will inform health professionals if your student will require an injection instead.
