The flu and you

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses for everyone 6 months of age and older. For more information about the flu, visit the CDC web site.

Don’t “friend” the flu. 

Our Philosophy

We at Community Hospital believe in flu vaccinations to protect our patients, our community and our families. In the 2014/2015 flu season, 94% of our employees were vaccinated. This compares to a national rate of 75.2% among health care workers. We are proud of this number. For those employees unable to receive the vaccine, our caregivers will wear a mask when directly caring for patients.  

Where to get vaccinated

Flu vaccines are not offered at Community Hospital for walk-in community members, but vaccines are available throughout Monterey County:
