Due to a delay of the arrival of flu vaccine this year, those at a high risk for serious complications from flu or those who take care of high-risk people are the first to get the available vaccine.
The Imperial County Public Health Department will administer the flu vaccine only to those who meet at least one of the following requirements:
· 60 years of age and older
· those with a chronic medical condition such as asthma or another lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, blood disease
· those with immune system problems caused by diseases such as HIV infection or lymphoma, medications or treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy
