Both the injectable seasonal flu vaccine and nasal spray flu vaccine will be available, at no charge, at other DHHS flu clinics at various locations in the county, October through December. 

Visit http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/flu or call 311 for county locations.  The Flu vaccine also may be available from your health care provider.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone six months of age and older get vaccinated every year against the flu. It is very important for individuals with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes or chronic lung disease, pregnant women and those 65 years of age and older. Those living with or caring for high-risk individuals should also get vaccinated.

A flu vaccination is needed every year because viruses are constantly changing. The flu vaccine is manufactured each year to keep up with the flu viruses as they change. Studies have shown that an individual’s immunity to the influenza viruses (either through natural infection or vaccination) declines over time.

Health officials encourage everyone to help prevent the spread of flu and many other contagious diseases by practicing the following good hygiene habits:
Please !
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue; immediately throw away used tissues.
  • Sneeze and cough into the upper sleeve, not the hands.
  • Wash hands frequently throughout the day.



  • Wash hands by scrubbing together for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
  • Stay home from school and work if symptoms develop such as a fever with sore throat.
