COVID-19 Coronavirus Updates and Guidance

The County is taking a number of actions to keep residents safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Find status information for County operations and services.

Get a Free Flu Shot

The Baltimore County Department of Health and Human Services is offering free flu shots for individuals six months and older. The injectable quadravalent vaccine will be available, which is not the high dose vaccine recommended for people 65 and over. See your healthcare provider to obtain the high dose vaccine.

Schedule Your Appointment

Schedule online to get your vaccination on Saturday, October 17 or Sunday, October 18. If you do not have access to make an appointment online, call 410-887-3816. When you arrive to your appointment, wear short sleeves to allow easy access to your arm.

Discuss with your doctor whether or not you should get vaccinated if you:

  • Have ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction after a dose of flu vaccine, or have a severe allergy to any part of this vaccine. Most, but not all, types of flu vaccine contain a small amount of egg protein.
  • Have ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (a severe paralyzing illness, also called GBS). 
  • Are not feeling well

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 coughs and sneezes
  • Take time off if you have symptoms
  • Seek care if your symptoms get worse

Other Resources

Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for the most up-to-date information on seasonal flu. If you are unable to attend a clinic, find a location offering vaccinations near you.
