We are getting quite a few calls regarding the upcoming flu season.
There are a lot of unanswered questions, and as we get information we will post it here.
We have ordered our supply of regular flu shots and
will be offering those in as of early September – we strongly urge you
to get the current flu vaccination.
There is no information about who
will be able to order H1N1 flu shots – this supply will be very limited
for high-risk patients according to the CDC and their guidelines.
For those selected to receive the H1N1
shots, it will require 2 shots given on different days and we do not
know if you can get a regular flu shot on the same day as the H1N1 shot.
The County Health Department website is very good and we encourage you to visit it – click on the link for pandemic influenza at
In the mean time, WASH YOUR HANDS
