The Westchester County Department of Health will offer free flu shots to residents at the Westchester County Center in White Plains on Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The county has 500 doses of the flu vaccination that it can give to anyone over the age of 9. Since there is a limited number, residents are asked to register by clicking here or by calling (914) 995-7425.
“It’s important for everyone 6 months and older to get a flu shot every year,” Health Commissioner Sherlita Amler, MD said in a statement. “A flu shot now will provide protection throughout flu season, which can last well into the spring. It’s also equally important to wash your hands frequently, to avoid sick people and to stay home when you are sick.”
The Westchester County Center is located at 198 Central Avenue in White Plains.
