The Bernards Township Health Department has scheduled seasonal flu shot clinics to take place in October.
The clinics will take place:
· Wednesday, October 12 from 9:00-11:00am at St. James Church, 184 S. Finley Ave., Basking Ridge.

All vaccine used at the BTHD clinics is quadrivalent which means that it protects against four different flu viruses. All clinics are open to those 4 years old through adults and appointments are not required.
The cost of the flu shot is $25 for residents and $35 for non-residents. There is no charge for those with a valid Medicare Part B card. Participants should consult with their doctor before receiving the flu vaccine.
New Jersey law requires that children up to 59 months of age attending any licensed child-care center or pre-school facility, must receive at least one dose of influenza vaccine between September 1st and December 31st of each year. To assist parents in obtaining this vaccination for their pre-school child, the Bernards Township Health Department has scheduled our Seasonal Flu Shot clinics to include children who are age 4 and older in addition to administering flu shots to adults.
