It’s the beginning of flu season and Sacramento County Public Health Officer Dr. Glennah Trochet says there are plenty of vaccines this year.
“The vaccine has already been shipped to those who can provide it, so I would recommend that families start asking their physicians and providers if they can have a flu shot.”
Trochet says everyone should get a flu shot. But, she emphasizes that children, the elderly and those with chronic diseases are at higher risk of getting influenza.
Trochet says flu shot clinics will start at some area schools this week. She says the county will offer vaccines for $10 to low-income and elderly residents.
