The Castaic Library will host a flu vaccination clinic on Nov. 14 from noon to 4:30 p.m. in partnership with the County of Los Angeles Public Library and the Department of Public Health as a preemptive strike against flu season.

For the second year in a row, the L.A. County Public Library and Dept. of Public Health Services are collaborating to bring health care directly into local neighborhoods by hosting flu vaccination clinics at various County Public Libraries. Vaccinations will be provided by nurses from the County of Los Angeles Dept. of Public Health.

No insurance is required! Vaccinations will be administered either through the influenza shot or nasal spray to anyone six months of age or older. Minors will need to be accompanied by their parent or guardian to receive immunizations. More information about the flu vaccinations can be found at http://www.colapublib.org/flushot/.

Last year, 12 County Public Libraries participated and over 1,300 people received vaccinations – garnering the County of Los Angeles official “Achievement Award” recognition from the National Association of Counties (NACO). This year, we’ve increased the number of participating County Public Libraries to 15!

About 10% to 20% of Americans become ill with the flu each year. On average, approximately 24,000 Americans die annually from flu-related complications. In Los Angeles County, during the 2014-15 flu season, approximately 43 deaths were attributed to the flu – a marked decrease from the 101 deaths caused by the flu in the 2013-14 flu season. But without a vaccination, the flu is highly contagious. Pregnant women, children, adults 50 years of age and older, and immunocompromised individuals are especially susceptible. The best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated!

Evidence has shown that structural level interventions – like expanding access at trusted community-based sites such as libraries – increase flu vaccination uptake among these populations. Libraries are a valued institution where people get trusted information on limitless topics, including health. So we’ve responded by integrating health programs like flu vaccination clinics at County Public Libraries.
