In an effort to protect the health of Washoe County citizens, the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA) is offering free flu shots for homebound individuals.

Community members that meet the following criteria are encouraged to contact REMSA to make an appointment to receive a free flu shot which will be administered at the place of residence, by REMSA’s Registered Nurses. Flu vaccines help prevent the spread of illnesses, including for those most at risk for contracting the flu virus.

●      Has not already received a 2019/2020 flu season vaccine

●      Does not have suspected interaction or contraindication with the standard injectable flu vaccine
