Flu Vaccines Available Through County, Local Pharmacies
With fall here, flu season is on its way.
Flu season is coming and the only way to be prepared is to get a flu shot.
According to the Prince George's County Health Department getting the "annual flu vaccination is the most effective method to prevent flu virus infection and its complications. It is important for everyone to receive a flu vaccination every year, as flu vaccinations only protect against that year's flu virus strains", it says on the department's website.
This fall, the Prince George's County Health Department is offering free seasonal influenza vaccinations to the general public at community clinics. However it's subject to vaccine availability and vaccine quantities on-hand.
The clinics are walk-in, so no appointments are necessary and both the FluMist intranasal, or nose spray, and flu shot are available. However, parents must accompany children under the age of 18.
The next is on Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex at 8001 Sheriff Road in Landover.
There are also dates for free intranasal or FluMist vaccinations for school-aged children, where the families can also receive the vaccination for $26.99.
These clinics are walk-in as well and parents need to accompany their children. They are open throughout Oct. 19 to Nov. 18 at various locations and on various dates and are open 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
