Montgomery County Takes Flu Prevention Steps

With flu season on its way, the Montgomery County Health Department is offering free flu vaccinations at clinics across the county. 

"Get vaccinated and spread the word, not the flu," the county said in a release.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone six months and older get a flu vaccination as soon as it becomes available as it takes two weeks to take effect in your body and is the best way to protect yourself from the flu.

The clinics will offer the vaccination at no cost to county residents, but MCHD is asking for individuals to bring their insurance card if they have it.

The clinic sites listed below are walk-in and will have accommodations available for individuals with disabilities.
