The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and avoid spreading it to others.

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors would like to encourage everyone to get their flu shot.  If you live in one of the communities listed below the Yavapai County Community Health Services will bring the flu shot a little closer to you.  There are several opportunities to get your flu shot and very few reasons not to get one.

Many of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors hold Town Hall meetings and combine them with an opportunity to get your flu shot.  Several of those meeting dates and times can be found at Yavapai.us/bos including the Chairman Rowle Simmons’ Wilhoit Town Hall meeting and flu shot clinic on October 23, 2018.  The flu shots will begin at 5:00 PM and the Town Hall meeting will begin at 6:00 PM at the Fire Station, 9000 S. Magby.

Benefits: The annual flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get the seasonal flu and spread it to others.  The more people are vaccinated against the flu, the less the flu will spread throughout the community.

Who Should get the Flu Vaccine: Everyone should receive an annual flu vaccine.  Protecting yourself from the flu also protects the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu associated illnesses such as:  infants, older adults, and anyone with a chronic condition.

Does the Flu Vaccine Work Right Away? No, it takes about two weeks after receiving the flu vaccination for the antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.  That’s why it’s better to receive your flu vaccination as soon as available or early in the season.
