The Ocean County Health Department‘s drive-thru flu clinics will start on Tuesday, October 6 and will be open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m at select locations.
Appointments are now available to book through December at clinic locations such as Ocean County College, Jackson Township Senior Center, RWJ Barnabas Health Arena, Ocean County Fire, and the Ocean County EMS Training Center.
“Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from flu this fall and winter,” said Daniel Regenye, OCHD Public Health Coordinator/Health Officer. “The more people vaccinated, the more people protected. Getting a flu vaccine is something everyone can do to reduce the impact of flu. It not only will protect yourself and your community, but it will protect the medical providers on the frontlines who will continue to deal with COVID-19 and flu patients.”
The seasonal Influenza vaccination sites are open to all residents 6 months of age and older. Appointments are required for each person and a Pneumonia vaccination will require a Physician prescription.
Getting a flu vaccine will:
- Help conserve the medical resources needed for the care of COVID-19 patients.
- Help protect frontline health care and other essential workers.
- A flu vaccine is an easy way to help “flatten the curve” of flue illness.
