Press release from Gloucester County Freeholder Board.
With the end of the year approaching and flu season peaking between December and February, residents are encouraged to take advantage of the county’s free flu shot clinic before the clinics end for the year.
Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “By offering our clinics from September to January we ensure that all of our residents have an opportunity to keep themselves and their loved ones safe during the peak of flu season, especially with how aggressive the flu has been the past few years.”
