Health Division: Time to get your seasonal flu vaccine

Oct. 2, 2017, Pontiac, Mich. – Oakland County Health Division begins their annual flu vaccination program on Tuesday, Oct. 3, County Executive L. Brooks Patterson announced today. The flu vaccine protects against as many as four flu viruses which are most likely to occur this season.

“Our priority is always the health of our residents, especially during flu season,” Patterson said. “I urge everyone who is able to take the necessary precautions against the flu including getting vaccinated.”

Flu shots are available for $25 at both Health Division offices in Pontiac and Southfield. Individuals 65 years and older qualify for a high-dose flu shot, which costs $47. Clinic hours are noon – 8 p.m. on Mondays and 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. Pre-payment and registration are not available at these walk-in clinics.

“Get a flu shot every year to protect yourself and loved ones,” said Leigh-Anne Stafford, health officer for Oakland County. “Flu and flu-related illnesses can take the lives of up to 56,000 Americans a year. The flu shot reduces the risk of getting the flu and protects the community around you.”
