  OCEAN COUNTY – Have you received your flu shot yet? The Ocean County Health Department has just announced appointment dates for their flu clinic.

  The OCHD wants to remind residents that the flu vaccine protects against several different flu viruses (strains). If you are six months of age and older you should get vaccinated against seasonal flu every year. It is very important for pregnant women and people with chronic diseases to get a flu shot.

  Children under the age of six months are at high-risk of serious flu illness. Although they are too young to be vaccinated, you can prevent them from getting sick by having caregivers get vaccinated.

  Visit ochd.org/flu to make an appointment, and remember to complete all required forms prior to your visit.
