These flu vaccine clinics are available free of charge to adults 60 years and older. Patients with Medicare and Medicaid must bring their cards. Individuals 9 through 59 years of age can receive the vaccine, but will be charged a $25 fee. Bring proof of Rockland County residency such as a driver’s license. No appointments are needed. “Get your flu shot now – it’s not too late. Flu season doesn’t usually peak until January or February and can last until May. The flu shot offers protection for you through the holidays, and for the rest of the flu season,” said Dr. Joan H. Facelle, Rockland County Commissioner of Health.
