The flu is serious. Don't pass it on!

Flu shots are available at no cost to our members at Kaiser Permanente medical facilities.

These grants will help wonderful local organizations serve our most vulnerable neighbors, strengthening all of northern San Mateo County’s communities,” said Helen Archer-Duste, chief operating officer and chief nurse executive, Kaiser Permanente South San Francisco.

“Supporting organizations that make a meaningful difference in the community is one way Kaiser Permanente fulfills our commitment to the Total Health of our members and the communities we serve,” said Ron Groepper, senior vice president and area manager, Kaiser Permanente Greater San Francisco.

Free Take a Hike program

Join park rangers and docents on a hike every month that combines exercise and information about park features and natural history. Take A Hike is a member of the Healthy Parks, Healthy People Bay Area collaborative with sponsorship from Kaiser Permanente.

For the few parks that have a parking fee, just state that you are there for the Take a Hike program at the gate and your fee will be waived. Arrive at 9 a.m. at the designated start location—look for the Take A Hike signs. After warm-up exercises, the hike begins.

The hikes are held on the first Saturday of every month, except for July when it will be on July 9.  For more detail, all the locations, all the dates and maps for each park, go to
