St. Clair County Health Department Encourages Everyone to be a “Flu Fighter” and Get Vaccinated

By The St. Clair County Health Department

Flu season is starting soon and it doesn’t matter where an individual receives a flu vaccine, what matters is getting it done. Vaccination options are plentiful in St. Clair County. Stay protected, get vaccinated.

Dr. Najibah Rehman, Medical Director for the St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD) stated, “Last flu season only a 1/4 of eligible St. Clair County residents received their flu vaccine so we are encouraging everyone to consider getting vaccinated, especially as we shift to spending more time indoors during the colder months.  The vaccine is recommended for anyone 6 months and older, including the elderly, young, pregnant and immune compromised. Vaccine locations include local health departments, pharmacies and many healthcare provider offices.  Additionally, the flu shot can be given at the same time as other vaccines—including the new bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccine that targets both the original and Omicron variant which is also important to consider.”

The St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD) and Teen Health locations are offering a variety of flu vaccinations (while supplies last) including:
