Get Your Flu Shot

This year, with COVID-19, it’s even more important to do everything possible to prevent illness and conserve health care resources. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting a flu vaccine to protect against flu viruses. The County is making it easy for you and your dependents age 18 and older to get immunized by offering free flu shots at various worksite locations starting in September. All flu shots will be preservative-free and cover four strains of the virus: H1N1, H3N2, and 2 B strains from the Yamagata and Victoria lineage. 

You do not have to be enrolled in a County-sponsored plan to get your flu shot. Just register and schedule an appointment. Here are some tips to help you prepare: 

  • An appointment is required for employees and dependents
  • Wear a mask and short sleeve shirt to your appointment
  • Bring your employee ID card and completed Vaccine Administration Record (VAR) to your appointment
  • Cancel your appointment if you feel sick
