County to Offer Additional Flu Clinics
The Middlesex County Office of Health Services would like to remind you that it is not too late to receive your flu shot.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) latest reports, influenza activity has increased in the United States. New Jersey is experiencing high levels of influenza-like-illness (ILI).
Due to the increased influenza activity in our communities, the Middlesex County Office of Health Services, in conjunction with the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders, will be conducting flu clinics at two locations within the county.
Flu clinics will be held on the following dates and times at:
 
596 Jersey Avenue, New Brunswick
  • January 15 - 2:30 to 6:30 p.m.
  • January 16 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • January 23 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • January 30 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • February 6 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • February 13 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • February 20 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
  • February 27 - 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
 
29 Oakwood Avenue in Edison
  • January 16 - 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. 
  • January 23 - 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. 
  • January 30 - 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. 
 
Flu immunizations will be provided to residents 6 months of age and over, no appointment is necessary. There will be a charge of $15 per vaccination, and exact change is strongly recommended.   Medicare will be billed where applicable.
  
 Habits that help reduce the spread of flu include:
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean your hands often.  (Keep alcohol-based hand sanitizers in your purse, car, and backpack, 
      when soap and water is not available.)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth as much as possible.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then throw away your
      used tissue.
  • Get regular exercise, enough rest, and eat healthy, balanced meals.
For additional information please call the Middlesex County Office of Health Services at 732-745-3100 or visit here.
 
 
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine.
  
Vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe influenza and their close contacts, including healthcare personnel and close contacts of children younger than 6 months
