9/20/2010 - Hamilton Township Announces Free Flu Immunization Clinics

(Hamilton) – Hamilton residents can take precautions to help avoid the flu this season by attending one of the Township’s free flu immunization clinics, which will offered in September and October.

 

The clinics are open to Township residents only as a courtesy, and proof of residency is required.  This year’s seasonal flu immunization contains protection from three different types of influenza including the H1N1 flu (“swine flu”).    

 

In addition to all adults, children over the age of 9 may also attend these clinics, but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  The dates and times for these clinics are listed in the chart below.    Residents who are homebound and physically unable to travel to a clinic can contact the Hamilton Township Division of health directly to schedule an appointment.  

 

The clinics that are marked as “tentative” will be held according to vaccine shipment availability.   There is no known shortage of the vaccine this year.  In the event that any dates are changed, the new dates will be placed on the Hamilton Township website (www.HamiltonNJ.com).     

 

Each year the influenza virus affects millions of people in all age categories, but it is especially dangerous to certain age groups and health groups.  Flu immunization is recommended for anyone who wants to reduce the chances of becoming ill with influenza or transmitting it to others.

 

Pneumonia vaccinations are also available this year for residents who are 65 years of age or older and for residents of all ages who have chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiac illness or respirator conditions.  Residents who are interested in receiving pneumonia vaccinations should contact the Hamilton Township Division of Health directly at (609) 890-3884 to schedule an appointment.

 

“Our free flu clinics provide residents with an excellent opportunity to reduce their chances of contracting the flu this season.  I encourage residents, and especially resident who may be more susceptible to the flu because of a chronic health condition, to attend one of our free clinics,” says Hamilton Township Mayor John Bencivengo
