The department held a two-hour walk-in clinic Nov. 20. The event followed the popular drive-thru clinics held throughout the county in late October when 2,160 individuals were vaccinated. Additionally, the health department administered another approximately 1,000 doses in the schools earlier :this month. "Roughly 20 percent of the ;population of this county ,will be vaccinated against ithe flu," said Tina Venable, !the department's director of inurslng. "That's more than last year when we actually returned vaccine to the istate 0 The flu vaccine is effective t ifor approximately six months, and historically When You Visit a Local Business You keep more money in your local economy You celebrate the uniqueness of your comunity You support local jobs You help the environment You encourage community You benefit from the experience You invest in entrepreneurship You make this community a destination Support your local merchants they suppport YOU! January and February are the months when the flu is most prevalent in Plumas County. For those who still want to be vaccinated, it's not too late. Public health will still dispense the vaccine by appointment, and individuals may also call their own physicians. Venable said another walk-in clinic could be offered if there's a need for it. "If we continue to have as many people make an appointment, then we may offer another clinic, but it wouldn't be until after Thanksgiving." The agency's goal is to get as many people vaccinated as possible in advance of flu season. Flu vaccinations were also discussed at the Plumas District Hospital board of trustees' meeting held earlier this month. Trustee Kathy Price expressed dismay that not all of the employees at the hospital or Perry Glover gives his paperwork to public health employee Lori Pini before he receives his flu shot. The whole process took just a matter of minutes, in the clinics have been vaccinated, requiring those staff members to wear a mask. Dan Schuessler, the hospital's director of nursing, is encouraging all personnel to become vaccinated, but said it can't be mandated.
