Immunize Nevada and the Washoe County Health District are offering a free flu clinic for children, 6-months old to 18 years old with Medicaid, Nevada Check-up, private insurance that doesn’t cover vaccine, uninsured and American Indian/Alaskan Native. A limited number of flu vaccines will also be available for adults and children with private insurance on a first come, first served basis.

Washoe County is experiencing increased influenza activity. A flu vaccine is the single best way to prevent seasonal flu. Anyone can get the flu, but some people are at greater risk for serious flu-related complications, like pneumonia, that can lead to hospitalization and even death. For those at greater risk of complications, getting the flu vaccine is especially important. People at greater risk include: children younger than 5 years old, but especially children younger than 2 years old; pregnant women; people with certain medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, or heart and lung disease; and people 65 years and older. It’s also important to get the vaccine if you care for anyone in one or more of these high risk groups, or for babies younger than 6 months because they are too young to get the vaccine.
