The Yolo County Health Department offered several flu clinics around Yolo County in Fall 2013. Community members, no matter the age, are invited to receive their flu vaccination at our regularly scheduled Children's Immunization Clinics.

Flu vaccinations are $10 at the Children's Immunization Clinic, however, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

About Seasonal Flu

The flu can make a person sick enough that they may not be able to go to work or school. Flu can also be bad enough to cause hospitalization.  Nationwide, seasonal flu causes over 200,000 hospitalizations, and over 36,000 deathers each year.

*January 15, 2014 Update* Nationwide influenza (flu) activity is increasing. The predominant virus so far this flu season is H1N1. This is the H1N1 virus that emerged during the 2009 pandemic. Seasonal flu is responsible for severe illness and death every year, but the H1N1 virus disproportionately affects younger adults, children, people with chronic medical conditions and pregnant women. In 2009 H1N1 did not follow the traditional flu season months of November through March. While it is too early to determine how long the flu season will last, there is still time for those who have not gotten their flu vaccine to contact their doctor, pharmacy, clinic, or attend one of the Yolo County Health Department flu clinics.

We are urging people who have not gotten vaccinated thus far during the 2013-2014 flu season to get vaccinated. All flu vaccines this season are designed to protect against H1N1. Flu vaccine is available for individuals 6 months and older. No needle is necessary for eligible individuals ages 2 years to 49 years who qualify for Flu Mist. By getting vaccinated you will not only be protecting yourself, but also vulnerable individuals of all ages.

For information about flu shots or disease prevention, please contact Yolo County Health Department at (530) 666-8645.

Flu Prevention

To prevent the spread of the flu and other contagious disease, the following steps can be taken:

  • Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs, and stop the spread of germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs often spread when a person touches somthing that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth, which allows the germs to enter your body.
  • Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick, too.
  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching the illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent others around you from getting sick.
