Flu Shot Clinic Now at the Primary Care Clinic 380 Building

9/24/2012

​Flu Shots can now be scheduled at the PeaceHealth Primary Care Clinic 380 (East Building) Ninth Street by calling 541-997-7134.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season.

It’s especially important for high risk individuals to get vaccinated. People who are at high risk of developing serious complications like pneumonia if they get sick with the flu include:

  • People who have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.
  • Pregnant women.
  • People 65 years and older. 
  • People who live with or care for others who are high risk of developing serious complications.

“Remember that antibiotics don’t help with the flu or other viruses.  Protect yourself from influenza as much as you can by getting a flu shot” says Clare Brien, D.O. primary care physician for PeaceHealth Medical Group here in Florence.  To schedule your flu shot please call either your physician’s office or call the PeaceHealth Primary Care Clinic at 541-997-7134.  We are looking forward to your call and to scheduling you for your Flu Shot.
