As we move into flu season, it is important that Pasadena residents and
our neighbors throughout the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding communities
take steps to guard against the flu. As our community’s leading
hospital for 125 years, Huntington Hospital is pleased to offer free flu
shots at various locations throughout Altadena, Pasadena and South Pasadena,
starting September 28 through November 18, 2017.
Vaccines are for adults 18 years and over, and for children ages 9-17 years
old with a parent or guardian present for consent. Our flu shot clinics
offer the standard quadrivalent seasonal flu vaccine that is widely available.
It protects against four strains of the influenza virus, including A ((H1N1),
A (H3N2), B (Victoria lineage), B (Yamagata lineage). Our single dose
vaccines do not contain Thimerosal preservative. Pregnant or nursing mothers
can receive this vaccine.
The standard vaccines are free to the public and no reservations or appointments
are required. Please note there is a limited supply of vaccines for each clinic.
