2018 Community Flu Clinics

Flu vaccine is the best protection we have from the flu and its complications. Flu vaccine also helps prevent spreading flu from person to person. The Columbia County Department of Health has received the seasonal flu vaccine and has scheduled community clinics for any Columbia County resident 19 years and older who would like a flu shot.

It is recommended that you call the health department before attending the clinic for verification that your insurance will cover the cost. Individuals must bring their cards to the clinics for verification. All others are expected to pay a fee between $41.00 and $42.00 for the flu vaccine. Cash or checks accepted. No debit or credit cards. Children aged 6 months to 18 years will be offered the flu vaccine by appointment at the regularly scheduled Immunization clinic every Tuesday from 1:00-3:30 pm at the Columbia
County Health Department located at 325 Columbia Street, Hudson, NY on the 1 st floor. An evening Immunization clinic is also available on the 3 rd Tuesday of each month from 4:00-6:00 pm. Both clinics are by appointment only. There are now two Pneumonia Vaccines available to individuals age 65 and older Pneumovax 23 and Prevnar 13. The criteria to determine which vaccine an individual may need are complex. In order to give each individual adequate attention, pneumonia vaccines will ONLY be available at the regularly scheduled Immunization clinics by appointment.

Talk to your doctor before getting the flu shot if you ever had a serious allergic reaction to eggs or to a previous flu shot, or have a history of Guillian-Barre Syndrome.
