PROTECT YOURSELF AND LOVED ONES WITH A FLU SHOT


Vaccination is the best strategy to protect people against the spread of the influenza. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu shot, to protect themselves and their loved ones. To help make that happen, the Division of Public Health (DPH) announces its 2011-2012 flu clinic schedule, running statewide from Oct. 11 to Dec. 1.

"Today's flu shots are very safe," said Dr. Karyl Rattay, DPH director. "It's especially important that anyone with a chronic health condition or who cares for or lives with someone with a chronic condition get immunized."

DPH flu shot clinics are intended for Delawareans age 9 and older who do not have a health care provider or whose insurance does not cover flu shots. The vaccine is the same as last year and the nasal spray vaccination is available in addition to the typical shot. DPH has received nearly 30,000 doses of vaccines and distributed approximately 20,000 so far. Health care providers, pharmacies and grocery stores are also offering flu vaccinations statewide.

Individuals without primary care providers and/or without insurance, who cannot afford a flu shot, may be immunized at DPH clinics listed by county below.
