Prevent the Flu with the Flu Vaccine

The flu shot is a safe, effective way to reduce your chance of ending up in the hospital with severe flu. This is especially true this year, with COVID-19 also circulating widely in Santa Clara County. The flu vaccine offers many months of protection but does not last forever. Also, the strains of influenza in the community change over time. It is important to get the new vaccine every year.

FREE Santa Clara County COVID-19 Testing Sites

Widespread testing provides a more accurate picture of how many cases exist in our community and helps us understand how and where the virus is spreading. Testing helps identify people without symptoms who could be spreading COVID-19 so that they can stay away from work and public places until their infectious period is over.
