  • Doctors have blamed a cheap flu vaccine for Australia's horror sickness season which has claimed hundreds of lives

As part of the 2017 Seasonal Influenza Immunization Program, Camden County officials stopped by another location in Runnemede on Tuesday, October 31st, to provide residents 9 years of age or older with free flu shots.

Washington had 278 confirmed flu deaths in the past year, and Throne says 6 of those were children.

A publicity campaign is to begin this week urging the public to get the flu shot.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends that nearly everyone over six months of age should receive the flu vaccine.

People who experience flu symptoms should contact their doctor.

Traditional flu vaccines protect against three different strains of the flu: two influenza A viruses (an H1N1 and an H3N2) and an influenza B virus.




Uninsured individuals can expect to pay $25 for a regular dose flu shot and $55 for a high dose vaccine for those who are ages 65 or older.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is once again recommending that the popular nasal spray influenza vaccine not be used this year as its effectiveness remains unclear.

If you do not have one of the warning signs, please call your provider to see if you can make an in-person or virtual appointment, or consider a walk-in or urgent care clinic.

Relatives of people in this high-risk group, as well as health workers, are also targeted.

Jalbert advised that the flu is highly contagious and can lead to serious complications and hospitalization for vulnerable people.
