Free Flu Shots in Maryland

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN,Md. - If you still haven't received your flu shot, there are three opportunities to get one - free of charge.

Atlantic General Hospital/Health System is providing free flu shot clinics for a second time this flu season. Individuals must be at least 13 years old to receive the vaccine at one of the free clinics. No appointment is necessary. The vaccine is made from eggs. If you are allergic to eggs, please consult with your health care provider.

Influenza and complications resulting from the virus kill an estimated 20,000 people each year, according to the CDC. Although rates of influenza vaccinations have increased in recent years, health surveys indicate that less than half of the high-risk population receive a yearly vaccine.

The clinics will be held from 3-6 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 15
  • Wednesday, Jan. 22
  • Wednesday, Jan. 29
