Flu Shot Clinic in Red River

November 29, 2016 - Immunization - Vaccination

High-Risk Residents Strongly Encouraged to Attend

In Red River the New Mexico Department of Health’s Taos Public Health Office will be hosting a flu shot clinic on  Wednesday, November 30, 2016 @ 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
at the Red River Fire Department, 100 E. Main St., Red River, NM, 87558. There is no charge to those attending the clinic. Public Health offices throughout the state have vaccines available for those without insurance or who are otherwise not able to get vaccinated.

Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each flu season, especially people in the following groups because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications: 

The seasonal flu vaccine protects against the influenza viruses which are expected to be most common during the upcoming season. For the 2016-2017 flu season, the nasal spray flu vaccine is not recommended and will not be available in New Mexico.

Vaccination remains the best protection against influenza. In addition to vaccine, New Mexicans can avoid catching the flu or passing it on to others by washing their hands frequently, covering their mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, and staying home when ill.

For more information on the no-charge flu shot clinic, call the Taos Public Health Office at 575-758-4719.
