2013 Flu Shot Clinics - Get Immunized Against the Flu!

It's not too early to get your flu shot this year. With confirmed cases of influenza already being reported in Long Beach and Los Angeles County, the Health Department encourages everyone ages 6 months and older to get a flu shot.

Many private providers have already received flu vaccine and are making it available to their patients, and some neighborhood pharmacies are providing the flu vaccine to the public at a low fee.

Additionally, the Health Department will be hosting a number of flu clinics this fall.
