Finding a Flu Vaccination

Getting a flu vaccine every year is the best way to protect yourself and your family from illness, missed work and school, and serious health problems related to the flu. CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated.

To find a flu vaccination, visit:

Your Provider’s Office: Ask your primary care or pediatrician’s office about getting the flu vaccination. Most offices have it available for their patients. Ask if your insurance will cover the vaccine and if there is a copay. Many pharmacies and provider offices have options for accommodating special circumstances due to current risks. If needed, ask if there is a more physically distanced option for you.

Access Carroll: Access Carroll will begin administering flu vaccinations for their patients around October 1, 2020.

Carroll County Health Department (CCHD):
CCHD will partner with Carroll County Public Schools and the Maryland Partnership for Prevention to offer drive-through flu vaccination clinics for children 6 months through 18 years of age. The clinics will be held:
