FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

8 March, 2011

LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District continues to offer free flu shots at its public health centers as well as at clinics throughout the Las Vegas Valley. The clinics are open to anyone over six months of age; parents must accompany minors. For information, contact the Southern Nevada Health District’s immunization program, (702) 759-0850 or visit www.SNHD.info.

The health district reminds Valley residents that flu shots are especially important for caregivers of infants and young children, health care providers, or people with a chronic medical condition. Although flu activity peaks in January and February, activity can continue through spring and the health district advises that anyone can still be adequately protected against the flu by getting a flu shot. This year’s influenza vaccine is well-matched to the three strains circulating around the Valley and across the country.
