Tis the season! The calendar is rolling into flu season and the Southern Nevada Health District is now offering flu immunizations at its clinics. This year, the Health District is offering the quadrivalent (four-strain) vaccine as well as the high-dose immunization for people age 65 and older. Cost of the flu vaccine is covered by most insurance. For more information visit the Immunization Program’s Flu Vaccine Clinic page or call the clinic, (702) 759-0850.

The Health District encourages everyone 6-months and older to get flu vaccinations. Some health care practices and pharmacies in the Las Vegas Valley are already offering flu vaccines to patients or patrons.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that flu vaccinations prevented 71,000 flu hospitalizations during the 2015-16 influenza season. In addition, the CDC estimates that the vaccine prevented 2.5 million flu-related medical visits and 5 million illnesses during the same flu season.

Although everyone should receive a flu vaccine, it is important that anyone who is more susceptible to complications from flu get vaccinated, including people with chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, or respiratory conditions. In addition, pregnant women and people who care for babies younger than two months old should also be vaccinated.

People who have allergies to any of the flu vaccine’s components, who have ever had Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), or are feeling ill should talk to their doctor before getting a flu shot. More information is available on the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/index.html.

The Health District accepts most insurance plans. Not all immunizations are covered by insurance. Contact the Health District’s immunization clinic for information and current fee schedule.
