Fight the Flu – It Starts With You!

Did you know that approximately 80% of flu deaths occur in older adults? The single most important measure you can take to protect yourself and loved ones from influenza is to get your flu vaccine shot every Fall. 


DMCC will host a flu vaccine clinic on Friday, October 7, 10am – 1pm, on the patio of the Del Mar Community Building, 225 9th St. A CVS pharmacist will be there to dispense high-dose shots specialized for the 65+ population, and shots are free with Medicare and most private insurance plans. Have a snack on us while you enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean and say hello to friends and neighbors. Registration is required; for more information (or to receive assistance in finding a flu shot or Covid booster elsewhere), call the DMCC office at (858) 792-7565.
