National Influenza Vaccination Week, December 6 –12, is a call to all Americans 6 months and older to get their annual flu vaccine if they have not already. Since COVID-19 and flu could spread simultaneously this winter, this week will serve to remind people that there is still time to get a flu vaccine to protect against flu illness and serious flu complications, such as worsening of chronic conditions or pneumonia, for example.
Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your flu shot from your primary care provider or at one of our walk-in care sites. Influenza vaccinations are available at the following York Hospital community locations:
• At primary care provider visits during regular office hours. (Please call the office first.)
• At the following Walk-In locations: Sanford, Wells and York, during regular Walk-In Care hours. Find out about Walk-In Care here.
• At the YH Emergency Room, as part of an Emergency Care visit.
• For patients with egg allergies, we have a limited quantity of Flublok vaccine available through your primary care provider. However, this must be scheduled in advance of your visit.
