The North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District (NLTFPD) will be offering flu vaccinations to individuals over the age of eight beginning September 15, 2020, for as long as supplies last (children under the age of eight should be taken to their pediatrician for vaccination). NLTFPD is only offering the regular quadrivalent flu vaccine at this time. The "high dose" vaccine contains 4 times the antigen as the normal vaccine and is only available to people over the age of 65. People 65 years and older are at the highest risk for flu-related deaths and tend to have poorer immune responses to flu vaccines than younger people. Anyone 65 or over interested in receiving this high dose vaccine should contact their physician for guidance. Vaccines administered by NLTFPD will only be offered at the Fire District’s main station located at 875 Tanager Street. Vaccines will not be available at the Crystal Bay or Mount Rose Stations, or at the administration office on Oriole Way.
Walk-ins are welcome but please do not come if you have been experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms. Masks or face coverings are required and please practice appropriate social distancing as necessitated. When you arrive at 875 Tanager Street, ring the doorbell by the front door and someone will be down to assist you ASAP.
The cost of each vaccine is $40.00 and is payable by cash, check made out to NLTFPD, or credit card. We cannot accept Medicare for payment at this time. For your convenience, Fire District personnel are available to visit homes or businesses by appointment. There is no additional charge for this service; however, the $40.00 vaccine fee still applies. To make an appointment, please call 775-831-0351, ext. 0.
