It is not too late – A Free Flu Vaccine Can Still Help!
Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic
It is National Influenza Vaccination Week and right now is the perfect time to get a free annual flu vaccine if you have not already. Many people are getting sick in our communities. Being vaccinated is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. It is not too late! An annual flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older to prevent flu illness and possible serious complications.
The Importance of Flu Shots
Millions of people get the flu each year. Young children, people with certain chronic health conditions, pregnant people, and elders are especially at risk of serious flu complications. Even people who are young and healthy can have severe symptoms and spread the virus to others who are at higher risk.
Getting a flu shot can lower the risk of getting the flu by about half. At Chapa-De, we encourage everyone age 6 months and over to get their flu shot as soon as possible. Getting a flu shot every year is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from the flu virus.

How to get the Flu Shot
It is both free and easy to get the flu shot. At Chapa-De, flu shots are offered during all in-person medical appointments for both adults and children. Quick immunization only appointments are also available. Or, patients can also walk-in without an appointment and get a flu shot between the hours of 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM Monday thru Friday.
