With the COVID-19 infecting many, people are seeking to boost their immune systems.

Updated Community Flu Clinics

Please read more for the schedule! Read more

YCCHS Announces Scheduled Community Flu Clinics

The ’21-’22 Flu season officially begins October 1, and the flu typically hits its peak between January and March.  YCCHS and state leaders have put an extra emphasis on the vaccination because of COVID-19’s ongoing impact. Flu vaccines will not protect against flu-like illnesses caused by non-influenza viruses.  Community clinics are listed in the press release. | PRESS RELEASE

Monday, 9/27 Update: Yavapai County reports 181 COVID-19 Cases and 7 Deaths since Friday.

This updated interim guidance from CDC allows for millions of Americans who are at highest risk for COVID-19 to receive a Pfizer, now referred to as Comirnaty, COVID-19 booster shot to help increase their protection. Decisions are pending whether boosters will be recommended for those who received the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines.  The bottom line is, if you got Moderna or Johnson & Johnson, the FDA has not approved getting a Pfizer booster. Moderna has applied for their COVID-19 vaccine to be fully FDA-approved for people at least 18 years old. They’ve also requested authorization for a half-dose booster shot.  Johnson & Johnson has said they expect to apply for full approval later this year. | September 27th Press Release

Friday, September 24 Update: Yavapai County reports 382 COVID-19 Cases and 13 Deaths since Monday.

Is it possible to have the Flu and COVID-19 at the Same Time? It's possible that the viruses that cause COVID-19 and the flu may spread in your community at the same time during the flu season. If this happens, people could become ill with one or both diseases at the same time, and because some of the symptoms of flu, COVID-19, and other respiratory illnesses are similar, the difference between them cannot be made based on symptoms alone. Testing is needed to tell what the illness is and to confirm a diagnosis. People can be infected with both flu and the virus that causes COVID-19 at the same time and have symptoms of both influenza and COVID-19. | September 24th Press Release
