It’s Flu Season 2020-2021

Q: When is it too late to get a Flu Shot?

A: When you’re sick from catching the flu 

The Burlington County Health Department offers residents free seasonal flu vaccines, and many Doctor’s offices, Urgent Care Centers, and pharmacies like CVS & Walgreens also offer free or low-cost Flu shots.

The convergence of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the start of flu season means some people can become infected with both illnesses, as well as put more stress on an already stressed-out health system.

“While not as deadly or transmissible as COVID-19, influenza still sends at least 100,000 people to the hospital each year,” said Health Department Director Dr. Herbert Conaway in a statement. “Getting a flu shot also helps conserve potentially scarce health care resources during this pandemic.”

The vaccines will be available every Thursday at the BCHD (See flyer) starting on Sept. 24 through January at clinics throughout the county.
