Welcome to Central Coast VNA & Hospice

This flu season, the Central Coast VNA & Hospice teamed up with the Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA) and The Clorox Company for Say "Boo!" to the Flu, a campaign to educate parents on the importance of flu vaccination and other prevention methods to keep their families healthier during cold and flu season.

Join us at our walk-in flu clinics every Friday in November from 12 noon to 4 p.m. (no clinic 11/28) at the VNA Immunization Clinic, 5 Lower Ragsdale Drive in Monterey, where you and your family can get vaccinated against the flu and learn other tips to help prevent the spread of the flu virus this flu season. Flu vaccinations cost $40, payable by cash or check. We will gladly bill Blue Cross or Medicare Part B insurances. Central Coast VNA & Hospice will vaccinate children ages 2 and older and their families. Flu shots, FluMist nasal spray and High Dose vaccine available.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. However, even after getting vaccinated, families should also use simple steps to help prevent the spread of the flu virus – and other potentially harmful bacteria and viruses – in their homes:

  • Sing & Scrub: Make sure kids wash their hands the right way. They should wash frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice).
  • Do the Elbow Cough: Teach kids to cough into elbows, not hands where they are more likely to spread bacteria and viruses through touch.
  • Disinfect Germ Hot Spots: Use a disinfectant approved to kill cold and flu viruses, like Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes, to wipe the surfaces kids touch most frequently—like doorknobs, light switches, faucets or toys.
  • Follow Good Health Guidelines: Eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body’s ability to fight the effects of colds and the flu.
