Free Flu Clinics for Community Residents

The Santa Barbara Public Health Department and the Santa Barbara County Medical Reserve Corps are providing free flu shots for all community members over the age of 2 at clinics in Goleta and Lompoc.

The flu clinics provide a unique opportunity for residents to get a free flu shot to protect their health, and also help their community prepare for an emergency.

Flumist vaccines will be available for ages two years to 49 years and the injectable vaccine for 3 years and older. An annual flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu and the flu-related complications that could lead to hospitalization and even death. Health experts across the country recommend that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine.

Each year the Public Health Department (PHD) exercises its community mass vaccination plan. The flu clinics in Goleta and Lompoc serve to familiarize residents with the mass vaccination clinic operation and to improve the county's mass vaccination plan.

The event is funded through the federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program.
