    It’s Not Too Late to Get Vaccinated Against the Flu!

    Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your family vaccinated against the flu. Influenza spreads readily from person to person in schools, workplaces and homes. Everyone over 6 months of age should get the annual flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for pregnant women, people caring for children under six months of age, the elderly, and people with long-term health problems. Highland Park students can get the flu vaccine conveniently at school at the Neighborcare school-based health clinic (click here, call 206-455-9025, or see school nurse for more information). In addition, flu vaccine (shots and nasal spray) is available at many healthcare provider offices and pharmacies for those who have insurance or are able to pay for vaccination. Visit https://vaccinefinder.org/ to help find locations. If you don’t have insurance, you can find free or low-cost insurance through https://www.wahealthplanfinder.org/_content/Homepage.html . Other immunization assistance is available through the Family Health Line at 1-800-322-2588.
