• Every year, the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency encourages residents over 6 months of age to get their flu shots. This is now more important than ever, as this year promises to be an extra-complicated respiratory virus season for our healthcare providers. Flu shots are free by appointment at the Public Health clinic, and are easily accessible through your primary care provider and local pharmacies, many of which offer coupons or discounts on purchases when you get your flu shot there. Learn more at www.ShastaFluShots.com.
• Since 2005, Shasta County has had the following number of annual deaths by flu: 1, 0, 1, 3, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 3, 1, 5, 6, 19, 2 and 3.
