Photo of person getting vaccinated by lu_lu.Getting sick is no fun, especially with the holidays coming up. If you haven't had your flu shot already, choose a convenient date and location by visiting the San Mateo County page Vaccines: Where to Get Vaccinated. There are upcoming dates through December 2011 at County locations from Daly City to Woodside.

The Details

All you need is to be over 6 months of age! No IDs are required at these San Mateo County Health System clinics. What else don't you need? An appointment, because drop ins are welcome. Why get vaccinated? Read through the CDC's Key Flu Facts for a list of possible reasons.

Reading

We have many resources on staying healthy and the flu. Two examples? Very young children will enjoy the sturdy board book Germs Are Not For Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick. Adults will find the new work by Stanford microbiologist Nathan Wolfe, The Viral Storm: The Dawn Of A New Pandemic Age,  riveting.
