Beat the Flu with a Little Stick.

Flu vaccines are now available at North Oaks Walk-In Clinics in Hammond, Ponchatoula and Walker, and no appointment is necessary. 
  
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting vaccinated every year is the single best way to protect against the flu virus.  
 
Individuals with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma, diabetes and lung disease are at greater risk of getting the flu and should be vaccinated. Vaccination is especially important for pregnant women and those who live with or care for high-risk individuals, including senior adults and infants younger than 6 months.

Other Weapons of Prevention

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend vaccination combined with these healthy habits to help you beat the flu:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away after use.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use an alcohol-based hand rub when soap and water are unavailable.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you get sick, stay home for 24 hours after your fever is gone—unless medical care is needed. (You should be fever-free without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • While sick, avoid contact with others to prevent the spread of illness.
Flu shots are available at the participating North Oaks Clinics listed below for children and adults, ages 3 years and older. The cash price is $38, and cash, checks, credit cards and most insurances are accepted.

* The North Oaks Primary Care Clinic in Independence has flu shots for children ages 6 months to 3 years. The cash price for this pediatric flu shot is $35.
