Remember: Free Flu Shot Clinic Oct. 28

By Herald Staff

COURT HOUSE — Residents are reminded to get their free flu shots this Sunday, Oct. 28.
The Department of Health will be providing free flu shots to all residents 16 years and older from 9am to 2pm at Kindle Ford on Stone Harbor Boulevard.
Each person getting the flu shot needs to complete and sign a patient consent form which is available at the Department of Health, online at www.cmchealth.net, in this week‘s Herald print edition, and in most pharmacies.
Health Officer Kevin Thomas said, “Residents should wear a short-sleeved shirt, leave pets at home, and drive through Kindle Ford and get their flu shot. You don’t even have to leave your car. Past experience has shown that the more full cars there are, the less time people have to wait, so try to car pool with your family and friends.” Persons needing assistance with transportation to the drive-through clinics can call Fare Free Transportation at 889-3700.
Persons with an allergy to eggs or Thimerosal (preservative in the vaccine) need a prescription from their physician to receive the flu vaccine.
If you can’t make it this Sunday, the county will be holding one additional drive-through flu clinic on November 18.
The Department of Health will be offering free flu shots for children aged 6 months to 18 years and their parents on November 27. For more information, call 463-6581 or check online, www.cmchealth.net.
The 2007 Flu Clinics are sponsored by the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders and are administered by the Cape May County Department of Health.
