FREE Flu Shots at Five SCCLD Libraries

The Santa Clara County Library District and Santa Clara County Public Health Department have teamed up to help people stay healthy during flu season. This October, experienced Public Health Nurses will be administering FREE flu shots to adults 18 yrs and older. For maximum protection, people should get the flu vaccine before flu season begins. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for the antibodies that protect against the flu to develop in the body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends getting a flu vaccine before the end of October, whenever possible.

Flu vaccination is recommended for everyone six months of age or older, but is particularly important for those at higher risk of severe influenza, including pregnant women, children under five years of age, adults over the age of 50, and people with certain underlying medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Pregnant women who get a flu shot not only protect themselves, but also help protect their babies in their first six months when they are still too young to be vaccinated.
