Flu shots available in Ehrenberg, Bouse and Salome

The dates are set for the first La Paz County adult flu clinics and the La Paz County Health Department has plenty of vaccine. The influenza vaccine will be provided at Ehrenberg Fire Department on September  13th from 10:00-11:00am, at Bouse Booster Club on September 15th from 11:30-12:30pm, and at Salome Fire Station on September 15th from 2:30-3:30pm.

The towns of Parker and Quartzsite will be scheduled in October.

A ten dollar donation for the influenza vaccine is appreciated for the adult vaccine. There is very little wait time with the Health Department influenza vaccine clinics. The Health Department does not bill Medicare for the vaccine so the lines move quickly.

Each flu season is unique, but Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that, on average, approximately 5% to 20% of U.S. residents get the flu. Even though influenza is a common illness, it can have serious complications. Some of the complications caused by flu include bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and worsening of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. Children may get sinus problems and ear infections as complications from the flu. Those aged 65 years and older and persons of any age with chronic medical conditions are at highest risk for serious complications of flu.  HYPERLINK “http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/qa/hospital.htm” More than 200,000 persons are hospitalized for flu-related complications each year. About 36,000 Americans die on average per year from the complications of flu.

If you think you have influenza (abrupt onset of fever, muscle aches and pains, cough and/or sore throat), please contact your health care provider for information on how to treat symptoms.

“Getting the flu shot is an excellent way to prevent getting the flu but it is not the only way. There are prevention techniques available to help prevent the flu,” said Diana Grazier, La Paz County Health Department Director of Nursing.

Though getting your flu shot is the best way to protect against influenza, these simple actions can stop the spread of germs and help protect you from getting sick:

  • Wash your hands.  Washing your hands often with soap and water or using a hand sanitizer will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.  When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick.  You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.  It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.  Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Other good habits, such as getting plenty of sleep, engaging in physical activity, managing stress, drinking water, and eating good food, will help you stay healthy in the winter and all year.  Hand sanitizer is an inexpensive way to ensure germ free hands and is available at most stores.

For more information on the influenza vaccination please contact the La Paz County Health Department at (928) 669-1100.  Or visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov.

  1. Flu shots are part of the globalists/eugenecists plan for population control. Google Flu shot hazards before getting them folks. Here’s a video for anyone who wants to wake up.

    There are at least one hundred more videos like this for anyone who wants to know the truth about flu shots. If you insist on getting a flu shot make sure you get the mercury free shot/ NO THIMERISOL flu shot. You have to ask for it of they’ll jab you with the poisonous one

  2. I find it comical that R.T.A. uses YouTube as a citing source for his arguments.

  3. I find it comical that you use no sources to counter

  4. Just wait…I’m looking through the National Enquirer now…

  5. I bet you are! What’s Britney up to today?

    Instead of laughing off the obvious, here’s proof from one of the globalists that they are using vaccines to reduce population

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvhZ1JZE7mQ

    And here’s another one for you

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaP0q_ONLYI

  6. Wow. A simple announcement about the availability of flu shots. Is there anything that isn’t political and controversial to you, RTA?!

  7. To quote your article, “These feelings stem from personal opinion, reading, and dramatic personal experience.”

    Now that’s what I call scientific!

  8. Hey John,
    I don’t think it’s funny that people are willing to kill other people for the sick belief of population control. It’s called Eugenics and Hitler started it on a mass scale, and now the sheeple of the world accept it. The truth will set you free!

    R.R., YouTube is a viable means of disseminating information. I don’t get why you ridicule information itself. I could understand if you had a problem with the content, but you only look at the medium and pre-judge without critical thinking. Now I know why La Paz County continues to elect dolts. YOU, out of the gene pool!

  9. R.R.,
    Now I get you. Reading and personal opinion are bad. Can’t use any of that to form an intelligent decision can we? Have to listen to the “experts”. Kind of like how Congress passes laws without reading the Bills. After all, they are the experts.

  10. YouTube is a viable means of disseminating information. So is Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. But what YouTube is not, is viable information. You worry about the future of this county and this country but are “educating” yourself with YouTube. If you want to become quasi-credible, stop with the YouTube. Try to find the source of the YouTube clip and reference that. But you won’t be able to. It is difficult to find references for a rap regarding sheeple. If you want us to engage in critical thinking, then give us something to think critically about because your conspiracies do not require it.

  11. Hey R.R.,
    Your ignorance is showing….
    I gave you the article Dr. Mercola republished and you shot it down because of one sentence in the article. (a logical statement at that) Dr. Mercola is tops in his field and you took one statement from the article he republished and completely ignored all the science discussed.

    There is nothing un-credible about YouTube just because you don’t like it.

    I educate myself wherever truth is. It could be a book, It could be a blog, it could be YouTube. It could be a seminar. (How old school is that?) The truth is out there, you just have to look for it.

    And for what it is worth, the rap about sheeple asked you to look up Codex Alimentarius, did you do that? YOU find the source. I don’t babysit sheeple. I just try to wake them up.

  12. The science behind Dr. Mercola’s article is this: read the insert included with the flu shot. His personal experience is when his wife received the flu shot in the early 90’s. He would have been better off emphasizing the importance of healthy living than failing to persuade people about the dangers of the flu shot. I’m not saying that medicine doesn’t have side effects. I’m just saying he wasn’t persuasive in doing so. What’s ironic is he is accused of the same tactics that you accuse the government of. Scare tactics. But then again, he has nothing to gain does he? Of course he does! By scaring people away from medicine, it scares them to buy his products. Interesting. I’m sure by selling us his health products that he only has our best interests in mind. And you call us sheeple. Lucky for you, I’ll be your shepherd and show you the light.

  13. Take the needle then! I’ve already seen the light!!!

  14. It is funny that people will inject themselves with something and have NO idea what’s in it. It is something I won’t ever do again…

  15. Thanks for being awake RiverRobb. We need to swell our ranks. Did you have an adverse reaction to a vaccine at one time?

  16. My husband has never had a flue shot…never, and he’s never had the flue. Why do some folks get the shot and get the flue anyway. I thought the shot was to prevent the flue.

  17. I’ve never had any adverse reactions to the shots either, but after seeing and reading what I’ve read about vaccines, I just can’t imagine doing it again. I didn’t know what all was in the shot and took it anyway. Not sure it helped, not sure it hurt either. Just not worth the risk of consuming things without knowing EVERYTHING that is in it. On top of the idea that we’re not developing natural immunities etc…

  18. Some of the stuff said about these vaccines is downright scary. Top scientists have said there are timed release viruses added to the vaccines. So it could be YEARS before anything shows up. The globalists are murderers. Don’t trust anything they say, no matter how much they sugar coat it.

  19. Yikes. Conspiracy theories abound. Time for some common sense:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aky-sRri-NQ (warning, may offend some)

  20. While the clip does have some profanity the information is sound. I especially liked the opening clip. Thank you John for bringing common sense to this subject.

  21. R.T.A. is CARL!

  22. I knew you weren’t Carl. Carl didn’t reference YouTube. I have no issue with your premise that we should know what we put into our bodies. I agree. But it’s your ludacrous assertion that a specific group of people are out to control or kill the population through the use of vaccines. Let’s take your argument at face value. Think of the number of people that it would take to pull this off in both pharmaceuticals and the government. Do you think the government you say is worthless, inefficient and does not think, would be able to pull off a cover-up of this magnitude? For this long? Just based off capabilities your argument fails. Stop watching YouTube and read cdc.gov. But then again, they are part of the government dummies that are smart enough to pull off the slow killing of mankind.

    Doctors use another poison to heal people. They call it chemotherapy. Is that too, a part of the conspiracy?

  23. R.R.,
    I would never take chemo. It kills good and bad cells.There are far more effective ways to kill cancer than chemo. You can call it a conspiracy if you like, I prefer to call it what it is, evil!
    healthwyze.org/…/443-jama-admits-that-chemo-and-radiation-are-likely-to-cause-death.html – Cached

    books.google.com/books?isbn=0307587460…

    Go get the flu shot, and make sure your entire family get the vaccines too. Your argument here fails to convince me as mine does you.

    And yes, the people behind all this evil can do it for so long because people are too lazy to think critically. You are living proof of this.

    After all, our government is honest! (remember weapons of mass destruction?)

    If my argument is “ludacrous” as you claim then why did Bill Gates admit to this in the above video?

    There IS a PLAN to reduce population. Bill Gates even admitted it at the TED conference above. (You probably didn’t watch it because it was on that silly Youtube thingy) Don’t believe it if you don’t want to. You will be the first one in the population control GMO food line, kind of like what the jews did when they were told to take a shower! (I guess that was just a crazy conspiracy in its day too)

    P.S. Anyone new to this thread….. [Let me interrupt you there RTA. I sent you an email describing exactly why your comments have been deleted, and nobody else even needs to guess. Nothing to do with losing an argument whatever.]

  24. If it’s important enough to censor here, it’s important to let everyone know, John

  25. RTA, you’re just full of anger, insults and derogatory comments for everything and everyone, and I’ve heard from a lot of people who are fed up with it. That’s all. I’ve tried to explain it before, so now, anything we consider disruptive will just disappear without explanation.

  26. It’s hard to argue with Gates. If he said it, I’m sure he has facts and research to back it up. Oh wait…he does.

    http://www.gatesfoundation.org/annual-letter/2009/Pages/2009-preventing-childhood-deaths.aspx

    This is page 2 from the 2009 Annual Letter for the Gates Foundation. (Yes, the same Bill Gates you referenced above.) I’ll hit a couple of the highlights.

    “…the availability of life-saving vaccines reduced the number of deaths.”

    “The key to eliminating these conditions is the invention of a handful of new vaccines and getting them into widespread usage.”

    Opps. Do you see what happens when you expand your research to beyond YouTube…you find the truth and facts.

  27. I’ve never had adverse reactions to the vaccines; or of that I am aware 🙂 At any rate… while I don’t subscribe to the “they’re out to get us” mentality that has reared it’s head here, I do find it odd that people will take at face value that all vaccines are good without knowing exactly what is in them. That to me is very scary.

    There are several people who will not eat at “Restaurant X” because of what they’ve heard or seen and yet people line up and blindly follow a “doctor’s” advice. Not that the doctor’s are evil or anything like that but… No one is perfect and it’s entirely possible that an agenda is being put forth.

    Also given the propensity for having a government agency trying to justify it’s existence, I hardly think that citing them as a reference alone is “factual.” Given the numbers of those in places influential, exaggerating things for their own benefit, I hardly think it’s good practice to just blindly follow them.

    There was a study done in the 70’s whereby they found that people will follow leaders more easily than they will follow their fellow man. People who are elected and appointed by those elected are not necessarily the most knowledgeable around. I think it’s a good idea to take some information from a lot of different sources and make an informed decision based on that information. Men in black helicopters are not out to kill us but that doesn’t mean that all vaccines are necessarily good. Open your mind and take your chances based on what you discover.

    Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
