ARMC Offers Flu Shots

ARMC Offers Flu Shots

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) is offering flu shots at its Medical Mobile Clinic and Breathmobile sites for adults 18 years and older. Insurance will be billed for the flu vaccination and those without insurance will receive a free vaccination.

As we enter flu season, ARMC is urging individuals to get a flu shot for protection against influenza infection and associated complications. Because influenza viruses change, individuals should get re-vaccinated every year to best protect themselves. A flu vaccine is even more important than ever to help reduce the burden on hospitals responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that during last year’s flu season 38 million people became ill with the flu, 18 million visited a health care provider, 400,000 patients became hospitalized and 22,000 lives were lost due to influenza.

Appointments are not necessary for a flu shot at ARMC’s vaccination sites. For dates and locations visit www.arrowheadregional.org/services/flu-shot/. For additional information call (909) 580-1000.
