FLU CLINIC

Sunday, October 3rd
8:00 am to 1:00 pm
Sacquety Hall

We will have Senior doses available. Children 9 years old and older are eligible to receive the Flu Shot.

It has been advised to let ONE MONTH be between the Flu Shot & the Third COVID Vaccine.

Your COVID Vaccine is already protecting you, so receive the Flu Shot first if possible.

Your Parish Nurses,
Phyllis
A Third (3rd) shot for Compromised Immune System.
The immune do not always mount an adequate response, still trying to build this.

This should not be confused with a "Booster Shot".
A booster dose is when someone did respond, but in over time that wanes.

Currently on the news is the hope that immediately the Compromised will be taken care of very soon.

Most recently they are working on a 'booster' shot ( 8 months after ) for all people who received their vaccine.

It is important to start advertising our Flu Clinic on Sunday October3rd.
Absolutely important to receive this shot.
Hoag will also be supplying Senior doses this year.

Your Parish Nurses,
Phyllis, Brenda, Denise

Community COVID-19 Update from Hoag Hospital

Dear Neighbors,

We at Hoag were heartened by the news on Monday that the FDA has fully approved the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people 16+. We hope this new designation will encourage more people in our community to protect themselves and their loved ones.

In addition to providing inoculations for unvaccinated individuals, Hoag is now also providing an additional dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine (i.e., a third dose) for immunocompromised people in our community. If you received your Pfizer vaccine at a non-Hoag location, you are welcome to schedule an appointment for your third dose with us. Please bring your COVID-19 vaccination card with you at the time of your appointment.

Appointments can be scheduled at two convenient Hoag locations in Newport Beach and Irvine through hoag.org/covid-vaccine.

At this time, Hoag is not providing the Moderna vaccine. If you received the Moderna vaccine we encourage you to view these resources to receive an additional dose:

If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you will need to wait for the FDA and CDC to provide their recommendations for additional doses. This will likely happen soon.
Full FDA approval takes place when enough data demonstrate the safety and efficacy of the vaccines and when the FDA has had an opportunity to review and approve the whole vaccine manufacturing process and facilities.

We anticipate more vaccines will be granted full approval soon, and we’d like to remind everyone that all three available vaccines are safe and have proven highly effective at protecting against COVID-19. The vaccines have also been found to reduce the severity of illness in “breakthrough” cases.

We hope the FDA approval, and the availability of additional doses for immunocompromised people, will encourage people to take the actions needed to curb the spread of the Delta variant. Vaccines are free, effective and our best chance at protecting ourselves and our loved ones from a disease that has already claimed the lives of 628,000 people in the U.S. alone.

So, please don’t delay. More than 95% of people with COVID-19 who require hospitalization are unvaccinated individuals. We can wrest ourselves free from the clutches of COVID-19, but only if we work together. Please get vaccinated today.
