Livingston County Health Center has announced two upcoming opportunities for county residents to receive their vaccination for influenza for the 2020-2021 flu season.

Curbside Family Flu Shot Clinics will be held from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., on Wednesday, Sept. 23 and Monday, Sept. 28 in the health center’s parking lot at 800 Adam Drive.

County residents 6 months of age and older can get vaccinated at either clinic. Residents 65 and older should bring their Medicare card to the clinic and those with private insurance should bring their card as well. Those without insurance can still get vaccinated at no out of pocket cost.

To expedite the appointment, those signing up for appointments can access fillable, printable authorization forms on the health center’s website at County residents should complete the form, print it and bring along to the clinic to decrease the amount of time waiting.

The CDC recommends anyone 6 months or older receive an annual influenza vaccination. Experts think it will be even more important to get vaccinated this season, due to COVID-19 circulating at the same time.

More opportunities to get vaccinated will be announced until vaccine supply runs out.
