Free flu shots for Rensselaer County residents | Events
The Rensselaer County Department of Health will be hosting a free flu inoculation clinic for county residents this weekend.
The Dept of Health is urging all residents age 18 and over to be vaccinated against the flu and especially residents 65 and older or those 18 to 64 years old who are either a smoker or suffer from long term health problems including but not limited to:
o Heart Disease
o Lung Disease o Sickle Cell Disease

“Receiving a flu shot is vital to protecting one’s own health and the health of others who could face serious health problems from the flu. I am hopeful that those who have not already received their flu shot will take advantage of this free clinic and help limit the spread of the flu,” said Rensselaer County Executive, Kathleen Jimino in a statement.
The clinic is on Saturday, February 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Mink’s Firehouse at 595 Broadway in the City of Rensselaer.
