UNMH Administerd 1,700 Flu Shots at Health Fair

 

During the KOB-TV Health Fair Saturday, January 22-Sunday, January 23, UNM Hospitals with the Department of Health vaccinated 1,700 people against the flu.

"Influenza is active in New Mexico right now, so it is not too late to get a flu shot," said Susan Kellie, professor of internal medicine.  "The flu season often peaks in late January or early February and is recommended to vaccinate patients through out flu season to the end of March if they have not already been vaccinated."

New Mexico Secretary of Health, Michelle Lujan Grisham lifted the Public Health Order restricting access to the flu vaccine January 19, making flu shots available to any New Mexican who wishes to be vaccinated.
