Boise, ID, December 21, 2022 – Idahoans who have not received a flu vaccine this season are urged to do so now, as record numbers of influenza cases and high positivity rates are detected at Primary Health clinics across the Treasure Valley.
“We saw more than 650 cases of Influenza A and B in our clinics last week,” said Ann Weiss, M.D., Clinical Director for Primary Health Medical Group. “Our positivity rate of 44% for influenza A is substantially higher than the national average of 25% and it illustrates just how much flu is circulating here in the Treasure Valley. It takes the flu vaccine about two weeks to become fully effective in the body, so anyone who still needs that protection should go today and get their vaccine.”
Flu vaccine is available at all Primary Health clinics, including nasal mist for kids 2 – 18 and high-dose vaccine for patients 65 and older. There is no cost for the flu vaccine with most major insurance plans, and a discount is available for self-pay patients. Patients may receive COVID vaccines or boosters at the same time as their flu shot.
