San Bernardino County Offers Free Flu Vaccinations for All Residents

Published

on

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The County’s Public Health Department is sponsoring a flu vaccination campaign offering every resident a flu shot at no cost. The department has established “medical point of dispensing” (MPOD) sites throughout the County and plans to add additional sites (including mobile clinics) throughout the flu season.

“This year it’s more important than ever for residents to get a flu vaccination,” said County Public Health Director Corwin Porter. “This year’s flu season is overlapping with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, so we’re doing everything we can to avoid what we’re calling a ‘twindemic.’”

Porter said getting a flu shot will not only reduce your risk of illness, hospitalization, and even death, but it will also help free-up capacity for those who require medical attention for COVID-19 or other ailments.

“People who get vaccinated for the flu are much less likely to require medical care, which will save medical resources and reduce the burden on an already-strained healthcare system,” he said.

Following is a list of flu clinics providing free vaccinations throughout October. Many of the sites also offer COVID-19 tests, which the County is also encouraging residents to get.
