Free Flu Shots at Northwest

October 31, 2017

The 2017 flu season is upon us. The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services will conduct free injectable flu vaccine clinics on Nov. 9 from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm for children 18 and under at Northwest, John F. Kennedy and Rockville high schools. These clinics will be open to any school-aged child.

   The clinics are free, but registration is required due to limited vaccine supplies. For more information, visit the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services website.

   There are simple steps you and your child can take to stay healthy and help prevent the flu. That includes getting a yearly flu vaccine.

   The Department of Health and Human Services will also offer an additional flu vaccination clinic on November 13 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at Germantown Health Center at 12900 Middlebrook Road - 2nd floor in Germantown. For anyone 6 months of age and older. No appointment necessary. There will be a $20.00 fee for each flu shot payable by cash or credit card.

   Here are some additional steps that you and your family can take to help prevent the spread of the flu and other seasonal illnesses:

   1.           Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer. MCPS-approved hand sanitizer dispensers are available for use at various locations throughout schools (e.g., near the cafeteria or all-purpose room, near the main office).

   2.           When coughing or sneezing, cover your nose and mouth with your sleeve or a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.

   3.           Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth to minimize the chance for infection.

   4.           Stay home from work and school if symptoms develop such as fever, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, headache and body aches.

   5.           If you have concerns about the health of your child, please contact your physician immediately or, in an emergency, dial 911.
