Baltimore County will hold free mobile flu vaccine clinics Oct. 22-27 for individuals age 6 months or older.

The clinics, which will include evening and weekend hours, are part of the county’s efforts to ensure residents are protected heading into an “anticipated aggressive flu season,” county officials said.

“The flu vaccine continues to be the best protection against seasonal flu,” Baltimore County Deputy Health Officer Della J. Leister said in a statement. “An aggressive flu season is predicted this year and we want to make it as convenient as possible for residents to be vaccinated.”

Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said it is again important for residents to get their flu vaccine amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we continue combatting COVID-19, it is more important than ever to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the dangers of the seasonal flu,” Olszewski said in a statement. “We hope all our residents will take advantage of this free, convenient, and accessible way to help prevent getting sick this flu season.”

County officials advise residents to make an appointment to visit a flu clinic.
