Bill's Newscast: Free Flu Shots

17 October 2016  

Yavapai County residents can get free flu shots at special clinics this month.

Meet with Senator Flake’s staff

Prescott Valley area residents can meet with a member of Senator Jeff Flake’s staff. Mary Baumbach is scheduled to hold office hours at the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce offices from 2:30 to 3:30 this afternoon. Residents can get help with any problems they may be having with Federal agencies such as Social Security, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration. This is also an opportunity for residents to get messages to the Senator. No appointments are necessary to meet with Baumbach. If you can’t make it to this event but want a question about a Federal agency, problem or decision answered, call Senator Flake’s Phoenix office at (602) 840-1891. The Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce offices are located on Pav Way off Highway 69.

Flu Shot clinics

There’s still time to get your free flu shot during clinics being held this month. Clinics are being held at the Black Canyon Fire Department on Old Black Canyon Highway today, the Village of Oak Creek Fire Station 3 on Slide Rock Drive and the Gathering Place on Miami Street in Mayer Thursday and the Beaver Creek Adult Center on Zuni Way and in the Town of Skull Valley Friday. There’s a misconception you can get the flu from getting a shot, but Yavapai County Community Health Services spokesman David McAtee says that’s not true. McAtee explains you could get vaccinated again at the start of the new year. The Black Canyon and Mayer flu clinics run from 11 to 1. The Village of Oak Creek clinic runs from 10 to 2 and the Beaver Creek and Skull Valley clinics run from 10 to 1. Anyone who can’t make it to these clinics is asked to make an appointment at the Prescott, Prescott Valley or Cottonwood Health Services locations by calling 583-1000.
