Free Flu Vaccine Clinic at the Northern Nevada Muslim Community Center
Reno, NV (December 5, 2018) – Flu season has arrived in Washoe County for the 2018-2019 season. With last year’s intense flu season resulting in 80,000 hospitalizations and increased influenza activity reported nationwide, it’s now more important than ever to vaccinate.
Immunize Nevada, Renown Health, and the Washoe County Health District are hosting a free flu vaccine clinic for children at Northern Nevada Muslim Community Center (1855 Oddie Boulevard) on Wednesday, December 19 from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.
This event will be open to the public. Anyone over six months of age is invited to receive a flu vaccine. Vaccines will be made available on a first come, first serve basis while supplies last. Vaccines will be available at no cost to children and adults who qualify. If you have health insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, or Nevada Checkup, please bring your insurance card with you.
Immunize Nevada is proud to partner with the Northern Nevada Muslim Community in offering this flu vaccine clinic not only to members of the Muslim faith, but to the community as a whole. Faith-based community flu clinics play an important role in preventative health.
“Immunizations, including flu vaccines, are an important part of preventive care. Making these services available to faith-based community members at no-cost and convenient at their place of worship is key to preventing the flu" said Heidi Parker, Executive Director of Immunize Nevada. “It’s a win-win, for families and for our community.”
This clinic is made possible through the support of Immunize Nevada, the Washoe County Health District, Renown Health, and the Northern Nevada Muslim Community Center.
