Flu vaccine clinics scheduled around Chester County

Pin It

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

An annual flu vaccine is recommended 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. “Now is the best time to plan to protect yourself so you, your family and your neighbors remain healthy.”

“Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. The best defense we have is getting vaccinated,” adds Casner.

Flu vaccines are also available by appointment at the Chester County Health Department, at 601 Westtown Road in West Chester.

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.
