Rocklin Clinic Offers On-Site Flu Shot Vaccinations
U.S. HealthWorks in Rocklin is once again offering flu shot vaccinations on-site at local businesses or at Sunset Boulevard clinic in Rocklin.
Despite the fact that it is still early in the flu season, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting that most of the country is experiencing high levels of the influenza virus and is encouraging people to get the flu vaccine now. To view the CDC's report visit online.
U.S. HealthWorks has a Rocklin center at 2305 Sunset Blvd. To set up a date and time for U.S. HealthWorks to administer flu shots at your business, or for more information regarding this program, call the Rocklin center at (916) 632-9606.
U.S. HealthWorks, a leading operator of occupational healthcare and urgent care centers in the nation, said today all of its 182 centers in 17 states have flu vaccine available - and its medical providers will even come to businesses to vaccinate employees to decrease the likelihood of an influenza outbreak in the workplace.
"Many employees intend to get flu shots but for whatever reason don't end up getting vaccinated," said Dr. Leonard Okun, National Medical Director for U.S. HealthWorks. "We have vaccine available and anyone can come to one of our centers to be vaccinated. In addition, we will come to workplaces and vaccinate employees."
Under the program, a U.S. HealthWorks professional would visit your business and administer flu vaccinations and also provide educational information on flu prevention. The on-site program is available to businesses providing vaccinations for 25 employees or more and located near a U.S. HealthWorks facility.
In a statement issued Friday, Dr. Joe Bresee, Chief of the Epidemiology and Prevention Branch in the CDC's Influenza Division, made the following comment: "While we can't say for certain how severe this season will be, we can say that a lot of people are getting sick with influenza and we are getting reports of severe illness and hospitalizations. Anyone who has not already been vaccinated should do so now."
Seasonal flu vaccines protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. The viruses in the vaccine can change each year based on international surveillance and scientists' estimations about which types and strains of viruses will circulate in a given year.
About two weeks after vaccination, antibodies that provide protection against the influenza viruses in the vaccine develop in the body.
