Officials with Immunize El Paso announced that they have started offering flu shots at each of their three clinics on an appointment and walk-in basis.
“This is a great opportunity to get protected against the flu early in the season,” said Danny Acosta, Director of Immunize El Paso. “Immunization is the most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the potentially deadly virus.”
The non-profit is also working with area schools and businesses to protect anyone desiring vaccination against the flu.
The CDC recommends flu vaccines for everyone six months and older, including pregnant women, children, teens, adults, and seniors. IZEP carries unique formulations for patients over 65 and individuals suffering from egg allergies. Flu vaccines are safe to co-administer with COVID-19 vaccines, should anyone choose to receive both. IZEP will be offering both throughout the vaccination campaign.
Registering for a flu shot is a simple, paperless process – anyone can easily schedule their appointment and upload their health insurance documents by going online.
Officials say for those with difficulties with digital registration, walk-ins are always accepted, and our staff will gladly assist with registration.
