Many Options for Patients to Get Their Vaccinations

In 2020, getting a flu shot will be more important than ever, and NorthBay Healthcare has a unique plan to serve patients without increasing fears of exposure to COVID-19.

Flu vaccines will be offered to patients by appointment only, at one of five locations in Vacaville and Fairfield.

Options include:

  • Get a vaccine during a regular visit with with your provider, Monday through Friday.
  • Make an appointment with a Center for Primary Care nurse to have a flu shot during business hours at any of the Center for Primary Care facilities in Fairfield, Vacaville and Green Valley.
  • Schedule an afterhours or weekend appointment, at one of four locations (two in Vacaville and two in Fairfield) between Sept. 15 and Oct. 27, by calling (707) 646-5500.

Not a NorthBay patient? You can schedule a flu shot at the NorthBay Urgent Care Center in Fairfield or Vacaville by visiting NorthBay.org/urgent-care or calling (707) 646-4000 for Fairfield and (707) 624-7400 for Vacaville.

If you select an afterhours or weekend appointment, you’ll be able to check in from your car, as well.

“Our practice lobbies will not be open after hours to ensure the safety and social distancing of patients,” explained Rachelle Hunter, practice manager for Primary Care. “Your safety is our priority.”

According to Andres Vigo, clinical supervisor, NorthBay Healthcare expects to receive vaccines this month, with a goal of vaccinating 15 percent more patients than in 2019.

Both adults and children age 6 months and older should receive vaccines.

Injections and flu mist will be available during regular hours at the Center for Primary Care and Urgent Care facilities. Flu mist will not be available at the after-hours sessions.
