This season's 2011-12 flu vaccine has arrived at Benton County Health Services. The main clinic on 27th Street in Corvallis has flu vaccine for all adults and children, insured or uninsured. Only one vaccine for flu is needed this year. This year's flu vaccine offers protection from both H1N1 and seasonal influenza.
Most health care providers and local pharmacies currently have flu vaccine available. Call before you go to check on supplies and hours. To make a flu vaccine appointment at Benton County Health Services, call 541-766-6835.
Public Health is required by state law to provide certain vaccines. Below is the a list of what we are and are not required to provide.
We primarily serve clients who cannot receive their routine vaccinations with their routine providers.
All immunization services are by appointment. Call 541-766-6835.
Most persons receive their primary tetanus vaccinations in childhood, after which a booster dose is recommended every ten years to maintain protection. Tetanus is usually combined with diphtheria for primary and booster dose vaccinations. Persons who suffer a major, dirty wound should also receive boosters if more than five years have elapsed since their last dose.
