“We’re saying that the flu season has arrived,” said Dr. Yuan-Po Tu at The Everett Clinic. The type of flu seen the most so far this year, H3N2, tends to be more severe among the elderly and causes more hospitalizations. Read The Herald article, "First reported flu deaths include woman in Snohomish County."
Clinic employees received flu vaccinations in September and the Clinic offered flu clinics in October. Flu vaccinations are still available at primary care offices for both pediatric and adult patients. Walk-ins are welcome Monday-Friday, 8 am - noon and 2 - 5 pm.

If you're an Everett Clinic patient who got your flu vaccine at a location outside of the Clinic, please send us a message via MyChart so we know you're protected.
