The Salem County Department of Health and Human Services will hold six flu clinics this year, free to Salem County residents, with the first one set on September 24, 2019 for the popular drive-through clinic at the Salem County Fairgrounds.

Other flu clinic sites will be at Lower Alloways Creek Municipal Building, Oldmans Township Municipal Building, Cedar Lane Auctions, John Fenwick Academy in Salem, and Lafayette- Pershing School in Carneys Point.

The free flu clinics are made possible through funding from the Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Staff will be at each clinic who can assist in translating for Spanish speaking residents.

As part of the free flu clinics at John Fenwick Academy and Lafayette-Pershing School, the County Environmental Division also will conduct lead testing on children’s toys with factory coated and hand-painted paints. Please feel free to bring 1-2 toys to test for lead paint.

No appointment is necessary. Salem County residents 3 years and older will be accepted at all flu clinics. Registration forms for the flu shots will be available at the clinic entrance or at http://health.salemcountynj.gov/flu-vaccination-form/. Please wear light clothing so your sleeve can be rolled up for the shot.

Do Not Get a Flu Shot If:
You have had a reaction to flu shots before, you have an allergy to thimerosol, or you have previously developed Guillain-Barré Syndrome six (6) weeks after receiving the flu vaccination.
