Flu Shots More Important Than Ever

In 2020, getting your flu shot will be more important than ever, and NorthBay Healthcare has a unique plan to serve patients without increasing fears of exposure to COVID-19.

Flu vaccines will be offered by appointment only, at various locations in Vacaville and Fairfield.

Options include:

Getting your vaccine during your normal visit with your provider, Monday through Friday.

Making an appointment with a Center for Primary Care nurse to have a flu shot during business hours at any of the Center for Primary Care facilities in Fairfield, Vacaville and Green Valley.

Scheduling an after-hours or weekend appointment, at one of four locations (two in Vacaville and two in Fairfield) between Sept. 15 and Oct. 27, by calling (707) 646-5500.

Not a NorthBay patient? You can schedule a flu shot at the NorthBay Urgent Care Center in Fairfield or Vacaville by visiting NorthBay.org/urgent-care or calling (707) 646-4000 for Fairfield and (707) 624-7400 for Vacaville.

If you select an after-hours or weekend appointment, you’ll be able to check in from your car and receive your flu shot as well.

“Our practice lobbies will not be open after hours to ensure the safety and social distancing of patients,” explained Rachelle Hunter, practice manager for Primary Care. “Your safety is our priority.”

More information will be posted soon on NorthBay.org.

According to Andres Vigo, clinical supervisor, NorthBay Healthcare expects to receive vaccines in September, with a goal of vaccinating 15 percent more patients than in 2019.

Both adults and children age 6 months and older should receive vaccines.

Injections and flu mist will be available during regular hours at the Center for Primary Care and Urgent Care facilities. Flu mist will not be available at the after-hours sessions.
