FREE FLU SHOT TODAY

Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert are urging everyone six months and older to receive a flu vaccine as cases of influenza (flu) rise across the state. The Health Department will be offering a special flu vaccine clinic in Haverstraw on Thursday, February 22 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the WIC office, located at 26 New Main Street, Suite 1, Haverstraw. No appointments are needed.

The Health Department is offering the flu vaccine free of charge if you: are 65 years and older (please bring identification with proof of age); have Medicare or Medicaid (please bring your card); or are uninsured or underinsured. For those 6 months through 64 years old, there is a $25 fee (down from $30 last year). Cash or checks will be accepted. For those with private health insurance, we will provide you with a receipt to submit to your health insurance for possible reimbursement.

You can also call the Health Department at 845-364-2534 to make an appointment to receive the flu vaccine at the Health Department in Pomona, or check with your doctor and your child’s doctor, or visit https://vaccinefinder.org/ to find other flu vaccine clinics in our area.
