Community Vaccination Event a Great Success
The severe flu that has spread across the U.S. has arrived in California and is causing illnesses and hospitalizations in much of the state, according to the California Department of Public Health. The flu typically peaks in late February or early March. To help the local community prepare for this worse-than-usual flu outbreak, Washington Hospital launched a ÒDonÕt Procrastinate, VaccinateÓ public awareness campaign.
As part of the campaign, Washington Hospital held two community flu clinics on January 16 and 17. Washington Urgent Care will continue to offer flu shots seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Washington Urgent Care is located at 2500 Mowry Avenue, 2nd floor (Washington West) in Fremont.
