Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation suggests possible need for revaccinations

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation officials said Tuesday that people who received vaccinations at some of their care centers around the region may need to get new shots.


The foundation reported that it discovered that the some vaccines may not have been stored at the correct temperature, which means they may not be effective in protecting those who received the shots.


As a precaution, they're urging revaccination for those who received vaccines between January and June this year at Sutter facilities at 5150 Hill Road in Lakeport, near the main Sutter Lakeside Hospital campus.


Other affected care centers included 5300 Snyder Lane Family Practice, Farmer’s Lane Pediatrics, Landmark Family Practice Suite 202, Landmark Obstetrics Suite 165, Landmark Pediatrics Suite 120, Rohnert Park Pediatrics, Sebastopol Family Practice 652 Petaluma and Summerfield Family Practice in Sonoma County; Novato Primary Care in Marin County and 595 Buckingham Way, 1375 Sutter and Cesar Chavez Primary Care in San Francisco.


Those who received vaccines at different care centers are not affected.


For those needing to be revaccinated, there will be no charge for the visit or vaccine. Call the foundation's our toll-free number to schedule an appointment or speak with a nurse at 1-877-657-8987, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.


The foundation said there are no short- or long-term harmful effects from the original vaccine, or from being vaccinated again so soon after the initial immunization.
