But it’s particularly important for seniors to get their immunizations early, since 90% of all flu-related deaths occur in those age 65+. Make an appointment with your doctor, or visit the nearest clinic or drugstore offering vaccines today. As part of the El Camino Hospital Immunization Program, flu shots are now available for uninsured community residents at the RotaCare Free Clinic on the Mountain View campus.
Beginning Sept. 25, 2015, shots will be available weekly during Immunization Program hours: Fridays from 9 -11:30 a.m. and 1:00-3:00 p.m. *
No appointment necessary. Please call the flu shot hotline for regular updates on availability of the vaccine at 650-988-8255.
