UnityPoint Clinic will hold public flu vaccination clinics to help people get vaccinated for the seasonal flu.

Seasonal influenza, commonly called "the flu," is caused by influenza viruses, and spread mainly by coughing, sneezing, and close contact. Unlike many other viral respiratory infections, such as the common cold, the flu can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications in some people, including infants and young children, people 65 and older, and pregnant women. 

Yearly flu vaccination typically begins as soon as the vaccine is available, and continues throughout the flu season, which can last until May. This is because the timing and duration of flu seasons vary. While flu season can begin early as October, most of the time seasonal flu activity peaks in January, February or later.

UnityPoint Clinic will hold flu vaccination clinics in Dubuque, Peosta and Cascade throughout October. For people unable to attend one of the Saturday clinic times, walk-in flu vaccines are available at Urgent Care and Walk-In Care locations during normal business hours.
