Time To Vaccinate Your Preteen Pre
LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed January 18-24, 2009 Preteen Vaccine Week. This annual statewide awareness campaign is designed to highlight the benefits of immunizations and regular visits to a doctor for children between 11 and 12 years of age. There are more than 313,000 preteens between the ages of 11 and 12 living in Los Angeles County.
“High vaccine rates for infants and older children have virtually eliminated many vaccine-preventable diseases that once caused serious illness and even death for our youth,” said Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, Director of Public Health and Health Officer. “We encourage parents to help their preteens start the year off on a healthy course by scheduling a wellness visit with their child s doctor. Parents can discuss immunizations with the doctor, and gain tools to help encourage healthy habits such as eating a nutritious diet and exercising every day.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Society for Adolescent Medicine, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that 11- and 12-year-olds receive: “Meningococcal vaccine : to protect against certain serious types of bacterial meningitis and other related infections, “Tdap booster: to prevent tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis , “Human Papillomavirus vaccine: to protect girls against cervical cancer, “A second chickenpox vaccine , “An annual flu vaccine.
Events in celebration of Preteen Vaccine Week include:
Doses For People Who Are Immunocompromised

People 18 and older who got the Moderna vaccine and people 12 and older who have had the Pfizer vaccine: Get a third dose at least 28 days after second dose to complete the initial series. Get a booster at least three months later and a second booster at least four months after the first booster.
Children ages 5-11 years: Get a third dose at least 28 days after second dose to complete the initial series.
People who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: Get an mRNA dose at least 28 days after first shot, followed by a third dose at least two months later.

Visalia Unified Offers Free Covid
Visalia Unified entered an agreement with COVID Clinic to provide teachers, staff and students with free COVID-19 screening, testing and vaccinations.
The district is opening four COVID Cottages at Mt. Whitney, Redwood, Golden West, and El Diamante locations starting Oct. 22. Each site will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“The services provided by COVID Clinic are efficient, convenient, and reliable to VUSD students and families,” Visalia Unified spokesperson Kim Batty said. “Individualized testing and vaccination services will be provided at no cost to students and school volunteers.”
COVID Clinic, a nonprofit registered by the California Department of Public Health, will supply and administer Visalia Unified with testing. Test results will be distributed to Elevated Health as well as the school district and test recipient.
The California Department of Public Health recommends students and staff have “access to a robust COVID-19 testing program as an available additional safety layer” against COVID-19.
Those interested in using the services provided by COVID Clinic can do so without making an appointment, Batty said. Insured employees, spouses and dependents have also been able to be tested through the Visalia Unified’s Health and Wellness Clinic.
A full list of Tulare County testing sites and pharmacies providing testing can be found here.

By getting vaccinated against seasonal flu, you reduce the likelihood of getting the flu and transmitting it to others, an advisory from the Public Health Department said. You also reduce the likelihood that you will need to visit your doctor or an emergency room, saving healthcare resources for the care of those with COVID-19.

Very clean nice facility. I was using John Muir for urgent care needs, but these doctors are so much better. They take their time with you, and are very compassionate. I had to see them a few times recently, and every Doctor that treated me was top notch! One even gave me his card with his cell number in case my pain got worse. That’s great care! Thank you-staff is great too!
