Flu Shots in New Jersey

Flu Shots in New Jersey

Flu viruses can be detected all year but are most active during the fall and winter months. Flu season in New Jersey starts in October and lasts until May, peaking in February and March. During this time, expect to see high levels of influenza throughout the community. Prevent infection and the spread of the flu by getting vaccinated.

Make an Appointment


Benefits of receiving the flu vaccination will vary depending on the match between the circulating viruses, the vaccine that was used, and age and health status of the individual being vaccinated. If you have not done so yet, get vaccinated by making an appointment with your doctor or call our Public Health Department at 732-224-6819.


Prevent the Spread of the Flu

Flu shots do not prevent all respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold or in children, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). To prevent the spread of infection this winter, be sure you wash or sanitize your hands often, cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing and stay away from people you know are sick. Stay home if you still happen to come down with flu-like symptoms such as cough, sore throat, muscle aches, fever, nausea or diarrhea to prevent infecting others.
