Flu Season

Message from the CEO - November 2, 2021

Northern Valley Indian Health is committed to continuing to provide excellent patient care to our communities despite the challenges we have all been facing with COVID-19.

Flu season is now upon us and flu shots are being offered at NVIH clinics. It is suspected that this year’s flu season could again prove to be challenging as COVID-19 continues to be a factor. If there are no medical contraindications, I urge everyone to obtain their flu shot as soon as possible in order to get the potential protection from influenza complications. If you’ve yet to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, booster, or flu shot and are interested in obtaining one, please register at our website nvih.org. You can also contact one of our clinics to schedule an appointment.

The FDA has approved Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11 years. NVIH is prepared to offer these vaccines upon CDC approval. If you are interested in obtaining the vaccine for your child, please visit our website at https://nvih.org to pre-register.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we navigate this next step in our COVID-19 response. During this time, we continue to encourage everyone to follow safety guidelines. Please, wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds and wash your hands often.

Mask Requirements After June 15th

While we are all excited to return to a sense of normalcy, NVIH will still require facemasks for all individuals entering our locations. This pertains to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. We will continue to follow CDC guidelines in an effort to promote a safe environment for not only our patients but also our staff. Social distancing and proper handwashing will still be practiced.

Masks are required upon entry and if you do not have one, one will be provided to you. Health screenings for both staff and patients will also continue to take place at our facilities. This screening includes a temperature check along with a series of questions. If you are experiencing symptoms, please call ahead to notify staff so they can provide you with proper entry procedures.

NVIH will continue to offer COVID-19 testing and vaccinations. We appreciate those who have already been fully vaccinated as it is a huge step toward a safer community. Those who wish to receive a vaccine can contact any of our reception staff to schedule an appointment. Vaccines are available for individuals ages 12 and over.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing quality care in a safe environment.
