Final free flu clinic is Saturday in Woodland

By From page A5 | November 15, 2012

Flu shots will be free for the final time this season as the Yolo County Health Department hosts a mass vaccination clinic from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Douglass Middle School, 52 Granada Drive in Woodland.

Flu vaccine is available for a $10 administrative fee as part of the regularly scheduled immunization clinic from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays at 137 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland. Those unable to pay for a flu vaccine will not be turned away, a county news release said.

In addition to getting a flu shot, residents should follow these simple steps to avoid the flu:

* Wash hands often with soap and water;

* Regularly clean commonly touched surfaces, i.e., countertops, doorknobs and telephones;

* Don’t share cups, straws or anything that goes in the mouth;

* Cover nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze, and promptly discard used facial tissues; and

* If you are sick, stay home.
