Burlington County Health Department officials are warning residents that flu activity is increasing across the state but that it’s not too late to obtain a seasonal flu vaccine.

There are two Burlington County flu shot clinics remaining on Thursday, Dec. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Thursday, Jan. 4, from 10 a.m. to noon at the county’s health department offices in Westampton. Anyone who has not already obtained a flu shot is encouraged to attend.

Both flu shot clinics are walk-up, no-appointment needed. Anyone six-months or older are eligible for the vaccination, which is offered free-of-charge. Donations are accepted and help ensure adequate supplies of vaccine are available. 

Burlington County also runs a weekly COVID-19 vaccine clinic Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Burlington County Health Department. The clinic is primarily for young children six-months to 11-years old because this population has difficulty obtaining the updated vaccine from pharmacies and pediatricians.

Appointments are required for the county’s COVID shots and can be made online at https://tinyurl.com/BCHDCOVIDVAX.

The county also has a small supply of COVID-19 shots for residents 12 and up who are either uninsured or severely underinsured. Those residents should contact the health department at (609) 265-5548 to inquire about their vaccination options.
