Fort Bragg, CA – Mendocino Coast Clinics (MCC) is offering a free, drive-through Public Health flu vaccine clinic on Tuesday, October 20 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm in the west parking lot of 205 South Street. It is open to all coastal residents and no appointment is necessary.

“Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to be an MCC patient to get vaccinated,” said MCC Executive Director Lucresha Renteria. “The only people who should not get the flu shot are babies younger than six months old and the tiny percentage of people who are allergic (which is like 0.0001 percent of the population). We will not provide high-dose vaccines, so this clinic is safe for pregnant women and people who are medically compromised.”

In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Mendocino County, Renteria noted that the flu shot is more important than ever. People who get the flu vaccine typically either do not get the flu at all or they have milder flu symptoms, which makes them less likely to require hospitalization. “The flu shot is always a good idea, but it is even more important this year,” she said.

MCC remains dedicated to serving all people on the coast, including the most vulnerable populations such as the elderly and the homeless. To do so, it is imperative that healthcare workers remain healthy. Renteria urged people to comply with Public Health directives to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and limit non-essential group gatherings.

For details about the flu clinic, call (707) 964-1251.

Mendocino Coast Clinics (MCC) ofrecerá una clínica de vacunación contra la gripe de salud pública gratuita el martes 20 de octubre de 3:00 a 5:00 pm en el estacionamiento oeste de 205 South Street. Está abierto a todos los residentes de la costa y no se necesita una cita.

“Todos son bienvenidos. No es necesario ser paciente de MCC para vacunarse ”, dijo la directora ejecutiva de MCC, Lucresha Renteria. “Las únicas personas que no deberían vacunarse contra la gripe son los bebés menores de seis meses y el pequeño porcentaje de personas alérgicas (que es como el 0.0001 por ciento de la población). No proporcionaremos vacunas en dosis altas, por lo que esta clínica es segura para mujeres embarazadas y personas con problemas médicos “.

Con el reciente aumento de casos de COVID-19 en el condado de Mendocino, Rentería señaló que la vacuna contra la gripe es más importante que nunca. Las personas que se vacunan contra la gripe generalmente no contraen la gripe o tienen síntomas de gripe más leves, lo que las hace menos propensas a requerir hospitalización. “La vacuna contra la gripe siempre es una buena idea, pero es aún más importante este año”.

MCC sigue dedicado a servir a todas las personas de la costa, incluidas las poblaciones más vulnerables, como los ancianos y las personas sin hogar. Para ello, es imperativo que los trabajadores a la atención de la salud se mantengan sanos. Rentería impulse que todos cumplimos con las directivas de salud pública para usar máscaras, mantener el distanciamiento social y limitar las reuniones grupales no esenciales.

Para obtener detalles sobre la clínica de la gripe, llame al (707) 964-1251.

Time is running out! Wednesday, September 30 is the last day to respond to the Census.

It’s quick, easy, confidential, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Just click here:

Or call 844-330-2020

This is one of the most important things you can do for your community. Federal funding for critical services like fighting the wildfires that are blazing right now, school lunches for kids, services for seniors, and repairing our rough and potholed roads is determined by population. If they don’t know we’re here, they won’t know we need the money, and we won’t get it.

And it’s a lot of money. Each resident of Mendocino County is worth $1,000 in federal funding per year. Over the course of the 10 years until the next Census, that’s $10,000 per person. Based on an estimated county-wide population of 87,000 people, that’s almost a million dollars that could be brought back to our County to work for us.

So what are you waiting for? Call or click now! #2020census
