Get Vaccinated

The single best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu. There also are flu antiviral drugs that can be used to treat and prevent the flu. Doctors' offices, pharmacies, and clinics often have flu vaccines available. Butte County Public Health sponsors many free vaccination clinics throughout flu season and offers free or low-cost vaccinations for eligible individuals in their Chico and Oroville health clinics.

Flu Vaccination for Pregnant Women

Pregnant women are at increased risk for having serious flu-related complications and are urged to get vaccinated. Pregnant women should ask their primary care provider or OBGYN about getting the flu shot. If the flu shot is not available through your provider, pregnant women can get vaccinated at the Public Health Clinic in either Chico or Oroville. A flu shot during pregnancy protects both mom and baby for several months after birth.
