 The Health Department is encouraging people of all ages to get a seasonal flu shot from a healthcare provider, local pharmacy, retailer or big box store. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school (even virtual school) due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.

To find locations for flu shots visit the CDC's VaccineFinder HERE, or by clicking on the widget at the bottom of the page.

Did you know that our Drive-thru Flu Vaccination Clinics also served to prepare us to be able to quickly and safely vaccinate large numbers of people once there is vaccine available for COVID-19?  Take a behind-the-scenes look at one of our Drive-thru Flu Vaccination Clinics by watching our YouTube video HERE.
