WOODBURY, N.J. — The Gloucester County Department of Health will provide county residents with no cost flu shots beginning Saturday, October 10.  

This year, drive-thru clinics have been scheduled to accommodate those that have difficulty walking or standing in lines as well as a measure to promote social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger advised residents to make sure to put a few minutes aside to get their flu shot. 

“The best way to keep yourself and those around you flu-free this year is to get the flu shot as soon as you can. It’s never too early to start protecting yourself,” Damminger said.

Freeholder Jim Jefferson, Liaison to the Department of Health, said the county continues to make public health a priority by making free flu shots available.

 “There is no cost for our residents to receive this flu shot and all they need to do is show up with a valid ID,” Jefferson said.  “The county is committed to promoting healthy residents and preventative health care.”

Clinics are scheduled for weekends and during evening hours, with special clinics just for daycare and pre-school aged children and their families. If you are attending an in-person flu clinic, please remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

This year’s quadrivalent seasonal flu vaccine contains the following four viruses: 

• A/Guangdong-Maonan/SWL1536/2019 (H1N1) pdm09-like virus (updated)

• A/Hong Kong/2671/2019 (H3N2)-like virus (updated)

• B/Washington/02/2019 (B/Victoria lineage)-like virus (updated)

• B/Phuket/3073/2013-like (Yamagata lineage) virus
