The Davis County Health Department will be doing a Flu & Pneumonia Shot Clinic at the Syracuse Community Center on Friday, October 23, 2020. The clinic will be in the classrooms from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Medicare should cover the cost with a valid Medicare card. Other health insurance plans are also accepted. Paperwork will be available at the Syracuse Community Center for you to complete in advance. To help keep people safe, we strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask and maintain a 6-feet physical distance.
The single best way to protect against the flu is to get a flu vaccine every year. An annual flu vaccine can reduce illnesses in the community, decrease the time missed at work and school, and prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths. The Flu vaccine is available now; and the DCHD encourages people not to wait to protect themselves and their family by getting vaccinated as soon as possible.
According to CDC, it is likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading. In this context, getting a flu vaccine will be more important than ever. CDC recommends that all people 6 months and older get a yearly flu vaccine.
Please call the Syracuse Community Center at (801) 614-9660 #1 to set-up your appointment.
