NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - As the mid-way point of the winter season approaches, Middlesex County is offering additional clinics for residents to receive flu vaccinations.
“Preventions like vaccines keep us healthy during harsh winter weather, and ensure good health for our families and co-workers," Freeholder Director Ronald Rios said in a statement this week.
County officials cite reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) showing that cases of influenza have increased across the country and New Jersey is reporting high levels of influenza-like-illness.
Tthe Middlesex County Office of Health Services, in conjunction with the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, will be holding flu clinics at two locations, one in New Brunswick and the other in Edison.
Flu immunizations will be provided to residents 6 months of age and over, with no appointment necessary. There will be a charge of $15 per vaccination, and county officials say exact change is strongly recommended. Medicare will be billed where applicable.
