PHOTO: Ocean County Freeholders are encouraging residents, as young as six months old, to get the annual flu vaccine to reduce the chances of getting the flu and to stop the spread of the flu to others. The Ocean County Health Department expects to distribute between 8,000 and 9,000 flu shots this year at 50 different flu clinics throughout the County starting in mid-October.
For clinic locations, dates and times call the Ocean County Health Department at 732-341-9700, Ext. 7502 or visit the department’s website at http://www.ochd.org/.
