The Pasadena Public Health Department will sponsor a free flu shot and COVID vaccination clinic Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pasadena Senior Center, 85 E. Holly St.
The free clinic will be open to the public. To register or for more information call the center at 626-795-4331.

Responsible for 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths nationwide each year, influenza (flu) is caused by a virus that affects the entire body and for some may cause pneumonia, dehydration and other serious complications, especially older adults, very young children and people with serious health conditions.
In the U.S. alone, COVID-19 has led to more than 45 million confirmed cases and more than 700,000 deaths. Older adults and people with compromised immune systems are most vulnerable, yet people in all age groups have contracted and sometimes died of COVID as well. The only way to prevent its spread is a combination of vaccinations, masks, frequent hand-washing and social distancing in large groups.
In addition to online classes, onsite events and other activities, members and nonmembers of the Pasadena Senior Center are encouraged to visit the website regularly for a weekly blog, monthly magazine, COVID-19 updates for older adults and more.
The center, at 85 E. Holly St., is an independent, donor-supported nonprofit organization that has served older adults for more than 60 years. During the pandemic, doors are open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for social services and other critical services for older adults in need, as well as limited occupancy for events, the library, fitness center and computer lab. Masks and social distancing are required. Rooms are sanitized after each use.
Beginning Nov. 4, in accordance with county public health guidelines, proof of COVID vaccination or proof of a negative test within 72 hours before entry to the center will be required for everyone who uses the fitness center or attends onsite activities indoors.
