Flu Vaccine Clinics Scheduled Throughout the County

With the start of flu season almost underway, the Chester County Health Department is offering flu vaccinations at schools and community locations from September through November. Clinics are open to the entire community without an appointment.  

The Chester County Health Department recommends annual flu vaccines for everyone aged six months and older. “Because the weather is still warm, it is hard to believe that it is already the time of year to think about flu vaccinations,” said Jeanne Casner, Director of the Chester County Health Department. “Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death, and the best defense we have is getting vaccinated.”

“Everyone who takes the time to get the flu vaccine will be protecting themselves, their families and their neighbors, and I thank them in advance for ensuring that protection,’ adds Casner.  

The Health Department will have flu vaccine available for people as young as six months old, and special high-dose vaccine for seniors. People with private health insurance should bring their insurance card for billing. The flu vaccine will be available at no charge to children with State Medical Insurance and for all people who do not have health insurance.  

The following are dates and times of school and community flu vaccine clinics:
