Catch Up on Checkups and Routine Vaccines for Adults and Children!
Vaccines can prevent many infectious diseases. Most people know kids need regular vaccines, but did you know that most adults are not aware that they also need vaccines throughout their lives to protect against diseases like shingles, pertussis, and hepatitis?
For children, well-child visits and check-ups are essential for routine vaccination and summer is a great time to beat the crowd and get caught up on vaccinations before school starts. Talk to your doctor to see if you or your child are missing any vaccines, and for more information, visit:

It’s Time for a Flu Shot!
Everyone 6 months and older should get an influenza (flu) shot this year and every year. Flu season has begun early this year so if you haven’t had your flu shot yet, now is the time to get one. The best way to prevent flu is to get the vaccine!
Make an appointment with your doctor or clinic today, visit your local pharmacy to get a flu shot or visit www.sfcdcp.org/flushots for information on where to go for free or low-cost flu shots. If you still need to get your bivalent COVID booster, you can get both vaccines at the same time!
