Freeholder Gerald Thornton reminded Cape May County residents that it is not too late to get a flu shot. The Cape May County Department of Health will hold additional flu shot clinics this month. The clinics will be held at the Department of Health, located at 6 Moore Road (building 17) in Cape May Court House (Exit 11 off of the Garden State Parkway). “Flu season typically peaks in our area between the end of January to the end of February,” said Thornton. “This holiday season; give the gift of good health by protecting yourself and your family from the flu.”
Free flu vaccinations will be offered on the following dates:
Wednesday, December 8th: 2 – 5 p.m.
Wednesday, December 15: 1- 3 p.m.
Thursday, December 23rd: 2 – 4 p.m.
Tuesday, December 28th: 9a.m. – noon
These flu clinics are available for everyone 6 months of age and older. As a reminder, children who are between 6 months and 5 years of age who attend a licensed daycare or preschool must receive a flu shot by the end of December to continue attendance in January. “Children less than 9 years of age may need a booster dose one month after the first shot to be fully protected against the flu. Parents can call 465-1200 to find out if their child needs a booster dose,” said Health Officer Kevin Thomas.
