www.tillamookcountypioneer.net

Adventist Health Tillamook announces the following Flu Vaccination Clinic dates across their coastal rural health clinics in Manzanita, Tillamook, Pacific City and Lincoln City as well as inland health clinics in Vernonia, Sheridan, and Estacada. These dates are set aside to provide easy, walk-in access for all patients that want to get the flu shot in the quickest way possible. “What Flu shot clinics offer is a dedicated day that our providers and associates can plan for and turn into an event that streamlines the experience for our patients,” says Gina Seufert, Physician and Clinic Services Executive and Privacy Officer for Adventist Health Tillamook. “Our staff looks forward to these flu clinics every year as it creates a great opportunity to reconnect with patients of all ages 2 and up to provide excellent, compassionate care.”

Elizabeth Maslow-Najera, MD, infectious disease specialist at Adventist Health, monitors trends as reported by the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) when informing her patients about actions to take. “Anyone who’s had the flu knows that it can be some of the worst two weeks of your life,” Dr. Maslow-Najera says. “The symptoms of COVID have about an 80% overlap with the flu—and you can’t tell which virus you have unless you get tested. If people get both infections this year, either at the same time or one right after the other, chances of hospitalization increase and fatality can be a real issue.”
Adventist Health Tillamook provides Flu vaccination clinics along the North Oregon Coast for our communities spanning Tillamook, Lincoln, Columbia, Yamhill and Clackamas counties for all patients. Insurance can be billed, or paid out-of-pocket for $40 with financial assistance available. If you’re a patient outside of the rural health clinics offering these events or are not available during the dates listed, scheduled appointments are
available at all Adventist Health Medical Offices.
