'Tis the Season: Flu & Pneumonia Vaccines Available at RVNA Beginning 9/14

When the summer sun still shines bright, but school beckons and daylight wanes, it can only mean one thing . . .

Flu shot season is right around the corner.

And RVNA is armed to vaccinate. Beginning on Thursday, September 14, RVNA is hosting daily drop-in and appointment hours at our Ridgefield location, as well as conducting several flu clinics in the area, including the always-popular Vote and Vax at Ridgefield and Redding voting locations on Election Day, November 7.

RVNA will offer quadrivalent flu vaccines (both high dose and regular) and Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23 pneumonia vaccines at all clinics. As always, RVNA flu and pneumonia clinics will be staffed by highly-skilled and professional RVNA nurses with extensive experience. A variety of insurances are accepted, as well as checks and credit cards.

The annual flu vaccine is recommended for everybody ages 6 months and older by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as the single best way to prevent the flu and to significantly reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalizations. The CDC recommends that people get vaccinated by the end of October, and that children who need two doses of vaccine to be protected should start the vaccination process sooner. It takes approximately two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
