The Santa Barbara Public Health Department is providing free flu shots to anyone three years of age and older on Tuesday, January 25, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Santa Maria Town Center Mall. There are 500 free flu shots available.
Each year the Public Health Department exercises its mass vaccination plan in a different community in Santa Barbara County. These activities familiarize residents with mass vaccination clinic operations and improve the County’s mass vaccination plan.
The January 25 flu clinic provides a unique opportunity for residents to get a free flu shot to protect their health, and also help their community prepare for an emergency. This clinic is a joint effort between the Public Health Department and the Medical Reserve Corps volunteers from the Santa Maria area.
Flu shots will be offered for ages three years and older. The Center for Disease Control is now recommending flu vaccinations to all children up to 18 years of age.
The event is funded through the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program.
