Free County-operated Clinic for Those 18-and-Under to be Held Saturday, Nov. 21

Montgomery County health officials are urging all residents to get a flu vaccination and there will be one more County-operated clinic providing shots specifically for children ages 6 months to 18. That clinic will be held from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Dennis Avenue Health Center in Silver Spring.

The Dennis Avenue Health Center is located at 2000 Dennis Ave. in Silver Spring. The County will offer flu shots only. High-dose flu vaccine and FluMist will not be available.

Appointments for the clinic can be made on the Maryland Vax website. There will be no walk-ups for the clinic. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

In addition to the County-operated clinics, flu vaccinations are available through private health providers, as well as at retail locations throughout the community.

More information on how to prevent getting or spreading the flu is available on the County’s flu website.
