If you want to get a flu vaccine sooner than October 26th, there is ample vaccine available at commercial pharmacies throughout the county. Most pharmacies accept major insurance plans and Medicare Part B. In addition to pharmacies, urgent care centers also offer flu vaccine. You may also check with your primary care physician. In addition, Flu Finder websites like http://flushot.healthmap.org are good sources to search for the nearest locations.

As a reminder, you should always follow these everyday steps to protect your health:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand gel.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24-hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. Keep away from others as much as possible to keep from making others sick. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
  • To schedule an appointment for your flu shot or for more information on influenza and vaccinations, please call the Pinal County Citizen Contact Center 1-888-431-1311.
