Flu and COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics
GLENN COUNTY, CA — Glenn County Public Health in collaboration with Northern Valley Indian Health and Tri Counties Community Action Partnership (TCCAP) will be offering two Senior and two Community Vaccine Clinics. These FREE clinics will offer both flu and COVID-19 vaccines to all eligible residents, including the Pfizer booster. It is safe to take both the flu and COVID vaccine at the same time. It is important to protect yourself from the flu and COVID-19 viruses; although caused by different viruses, both share common symptoms, affect the respiratory system, are contagious, and can cause mild to severe illness.
To make an appointment for one of these clinics, or if you need transportation to the clinic, please call the TCCAP hotline at 1-855-268-2227. We highly encourage those interested in the COVID-19 vaccine (including the Pfizer booster) to make an appointment. Please note that at this time Moderna and Johnson and Johnson are not approved for boosters. Flu vaccine will be offered on a walk-in basis, no appointment is necessary. COVID-19 precautions will be in place including the required use of face coverings.

In addition to the flu and COVID-19 vaccine, there are other steps that you can take to help prevent illnesses this fall and winter, including:
∙ Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.
∙ Wear masks when in indoor public places.
∙ Ventilate indoor spaces when possible (i.e. open windows/doors, use portable air cleaners). ∙ Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.
∙ Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
∙ Keep social distance and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. ∙ Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
∙ If you smoke or vape, consider quitting. Smoking and vaping causes harm to the lungs. ∙ Stay home when you are ill and try to limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
∙ Consult with your health care provider about additional steps to take to protect yourself.
