According to Public Health, an important step to take this fall is to get a flu immunization. It is highly likely that both the flu and COVID-19 will be present at the same time. Now more than ever, it is important to be protected from the flu by getting immunized.
Beginning this October, LA County’s Department of Public Health (Public Health) and LA County Library will be offering free flu vaccines to those 6 months of age and older at select Library locations across the County. Flu shot clinic dates and locations for October and November 2020 are being finalized and will be announced on the LA County Library website, once available. Health insurance will not be a requirement.
The Culver City Julian Dixon Library will be offering flu shots on October 21 , 2020 from noon to 3 pm.
If you’re thinking of getting a flu vaccine, Public Health recommends calling your regular health care provider to see what other shots you may need. If you don’t have a regular provider, dial 2-1-1 (the LA County Information Line) or visit the Public Health website for a list of no cost or low-cost vaccine providers. Stay tuned for updates!
