Get a Free Flu Shot in Baltimore County

On October 13, 2018, the Baltimore County Department of Health and Human Services will host its annual Super Saturday flu clinics (PDF) at multiple locations around the County. Mark your calendar to make sure you get your free flu shot.

Who should not get the vaccine?

  • If you ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction after a dose of flu vaccine, or have a severe allergy to any part of this vaccine, you may be advised not to get vaccinated. Most, but not all, types of flu vaccine contain a small amount of egg protein.

  • If you ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (a severe paralyzing illness, also called GBS), you should discuss with your doctor if you should get vaccinated. Some people with a history of GBS should not get this vaccine.

  • If you are not feeling well, you may be asked to wait until you feel better before getting a flu shot.

Remember the Flu FACTS!

Residents are encouraged to remember the flu FACTS in order to prevent the spread of contagious viruses, including seasonal flu:

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water
  • Always get an annual flu shot
  • Cover your cough and sneeze 
  • Take time off if you have symptoms
  • Seek care if your symptoms get worse
