No more flu shots at the Health Department

flu-shotsForget about getting your child’s flu shot at the Chatham County Health Department.

The Health Department has seen a record demand for seasonal flu vaccine, providing more than 2,700 doses thus far to the community. As a result of a delay in shipment of expected doses ordered, the Health Department will temporarily be unable to provide seasonal flu vaccine as a walk-in service at its Eisenhower and Mid-Town facilities effective Sept. 22.

The Health Department does not have a firm date for expected arrival of the additional vaccine, but will let the public know as soon as the flu vaccine is again available.

It is still early in the year. The Health Department anticipates the ability to offer the seasonal flu vaccine in time for individuals to develop immunity before the peak of the flu season.
