The Centers for Disease Control recommends vaccination against influenza for all people over 6 months of age.  The flu shot protects you and those around you.  Flu can be especially serious in seniors, young children, pregnant women, and people with conditions like asthma and diabetes.

The Health Department is giving the quadrivalent flu vaccine which does not contain preservatives, including thimerosal. The vaccine is called quadrivalent because it offers protection against four different  flu virus strains that research shows will be most common during this flu season: two influenza A virus strains and two influenza B virus strains.

The flu shot is Free to residents of Montgomery, and the Boroughs of Hopewell, Pennington, and Rocky Hill; first responders; Municipal/District employees, and Medicare recipients.  Free-will donations accepted.
