NORRISTOWN, PA – The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH) encourage residents to get an annual flu vaccine available at any of the County's four vaccine clinics. Widespread community vaccination helps reduce the chance of getting the flu and prevents the spread of the flu within communities.

"Even as we continue to see high levels of COVID-19 transmission across Montgomery County, I want to remind residents that flu season is almost here," said Dr. Valerie A. Arkoosh, Chair of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners. "Getting a flu shot this year is more important than ever to keep you and your family health and safe, and to conserve medical resources for the care of patients with COVID-19. Flu shots reduce the risk of influenza illness, hospitalizations, and death. Everyone six months of age and older is eligible."

Flu shots are offered at the County's COVID-19 vaccination sites to residents 6 months of age or older who live, work, or attend school in Montgomery County. All sites are by appointment only. Residents can make an appointment and register for a flu shot here or by calling 610.278.5117. The vaccinations are no-cost, but health insurance will be billed for residents who have it.

The following flu vaccine sites are dependent upon vaccine availability.
