RCMS encourages everyone 6 months and older to get COVID and influenza (flu) vaccinated. We also recommend anyone over 60 years old to consider also getting vaccinated against RSV (respiratory syncytial virus).
We do not yet have COVID, influenza, or adult RSV vaccines at the RCMS clinic. Thus, we recommend anyone traveling out of the area to consider getting these vaccines at a commercial pharmacy while you are in an urban setting, where they may be more readily available.
RCMS anticipates getting flu vaccine supplies in early October. At that time, we will announce flu shot clinic details and in-clinic vaccination options. We will not carry the 'high dose' flu vaccine, which is another option for patients 65 and over. (Please note the CDC states it is acceptable for patients over the age of 65 to receive the standard dose flu shot).
We are currently unable to offer large community COVID shot clinics, but will inform the community if this becomes a possibility.
If you have questions about the RSV vaccine for persons over 60 years of age, speak to your medical provider or pharmacist to see whether you would benefit from this vaccine.
