San Andreas, CA...Blood donations are currently at a critical level and all blood types are needed! Vitalant (formerly Blood Source) is hosting the Calaveras Community Blood Drive on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 from 1:00-6:00 PM. Location: San Andreas Town Hall, 24 Church Hill Road, San Andreas, CA.

Since donations have been lagging, Calaveras Community Foundation has set up a friendly competition, a Supermarket Challenge, between our local Calaveras County grocery stores. This involves seeing how many of the stores’ employees and customers can and will donate blood on November 30th. It is hoped that the donor rate will go up substantially because of this competition. Every store (more than 10) has the information about how this will work. There is already a lot of excitement and interest.

11/06/2021 - Drive-Thru Flu Clinic Returns on November 6th
San Andreas, CA...The fourth annual drive-thru flu clinic takes place Saturday, November 6, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at Calaveras High School. The flu clinic is a collaboration between Calaveras Public Health and Dignity Health, Mark Twain Medical Center.


The flu vaccine is provided to anyone age 10 and up at no-cost. Nasal spray or Fluzone high dose flu vaccine approved for 65 and older will not be provided. COVID-19 vaccines will also not be provided at this clinic.

To make your drive-thru experience smooth for everyone, people are encouraged to register for an appointment on the My Turn website. People who do not have internet access should call (833) 422-4255 to schedule an appointment. Masks covering your nose and mouth are required. Please wear loose clothing to show your upper arm.

Flu or influenza, is an illness caused by the influenza virus. While flu vaccines do not cause the flu, they can sometimes cause mild side effects that include soreness, redness, and/or swelling where the shot was given, headache, muscle aches, and feeling tired. Adults 65 years and older and adults with chronic health conditions are groups at higher risk for developing serious flu complications.

“Getting a flu shot each year is a great way to protect yourself and others from the flu. It lowers your risk of getting sick with the flu and possibly being hospitalized or dying from flu,” said Dr. René Ramirez, Calaveras County Health Officer. “The tools we use to fight against COVID-19 such as vaccination, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, washing your hands, and staying home when sick work well for the flu too. It is essential in protecting yourself, your family, and your community,” added Dr. Ramirez.

Flu and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illness caused by different viruses. Because respiratory illnesses have similar symptoms, testing is often needed to tell what illness it is. People can also be infected with both the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.

Symptoms of the flu include body aches, cough, sore throat, fever, chills, runny or stuffy nose, and feeling tired. Visit CDC’s website to find out what to do if you get sick with the flu or to learn more about the differences between flu and COVID-19.
