Clifton Health Department Expands Flu Clinic Dates in Little Falls
The Clifton Health Department is offering seasonal quadrivalent flu vaccines this year beginning in September. Flu vaccines are available to Clifton and Little Falls residents only. The consent forms are available on-line at www.cliftonnj.org, the Health Education Table in the lobby of Clifton City Hall, the Clifton Health Department and both libraries in Clifton. Bringing a completed consent form to a flu clinic should expedite your visit. Pregnant women wanting to have a flu shot MUST provide a prescription from their medical provider before the flu vaccine will be administered. The seasonal quadrivalent flu vaccine offers protection against four (4) different strains of the flu virus. The seasonal flu vaccine is effective for only one year, so last year’s flu shot will not protect you this year.
The following dates have been added in Little Falls:
The flu clinics at the Clifton Health Department, 900 Clifton Ave., Clifton are being held:
A limited number of “high-dose” trivalent flu vaccines will also be offered to those 65 years of age and older. The “high-dose” trivalent flu vaccine offers protection against three (3) different strains of flu virus. The “high-dose” flu vaccine offers protection to one less strain of the flu, but the “high-dose” flu vaccine is designed to give a bigger boost to the immune systems of those 65 years of age and older.
The flu clinics are open to residents 6 years of age and older. All flu clinics are walk-in only, no appointments are required, and vaccine will be offered on a first come first serve basis. All dates are tentative and subject to change. Children 6 months of age through 6 years of age will be accommodated through the Clifton Health Department’s Immunization Clinic, please call (973) 470-5760 for an appointment or more information.
Persons with Medicare Part B as their primary insurance can receive the flu vaccine for FREE. These individuals MUST bring their Medicare card for presentation at the clinic. Individuals with an HMO, no insurance, or a primary insurance other than
Medicare Part B will be asked to pay $20.00 in cash or check for the flu vaccine. Clifton and Little Falls Board of Education employees will be asked to pay $15.00 in cash or check for the flu vaccine. We do not accept credit or debit cards. We do not accept Medicaid or Food Assistance Programs. If you are enrolled in these programs, you will be required to pay at the time of service.
The viruses that are contained in the flu vaccine 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 (2) weeks after vaccination, antibodies that provide protection against influenza virus infection develop in the body.
John E. Biegel, III, Health Officer for the City of Clifton, states, “The single best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine each flu season. It is especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications:
Examples of people at high risk of having serious flu complications are those who have diabetes, a heart condition, asthma, chronic lung diseases such as COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or other serious medical problems that make them at high risk for flu.
According to Biegel, “It is important that people realize they cannot get the flu from the vaccine; however, people who are allergic to eggs should consult their physician before getting vaccinated.” If you have any questions regarding whether or not you should receive this vaccine or if you are 65 and older and you have questions about which vaccine you should have, please consult your private physician.
The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.
